Do you expect efficiency with 1.42 lakh government jobs lying vacant?

In a revealing statement Mr. D V Sadananda Gowda, Chief Minister have conceded that over 1.42 lakhs government posts were lying vacant till December, 2011. Government had earlier outsourced Group C and D jobs, but has realised the adverse effect of outsourcing. Surprisingly, Education Department has maximum number, over 24 thousands, of posts lying vacant. This is followed by Medical Education and Police Departments.

Quite often we grumble that the Government Departments are inefficient. Do you think that with such a large number of posts lying vacant we should expect efficiency from Government?
