Panaji: The directorate of fisheries has made knowledge of Gujarati
language as desirable qualification for the driver’s post,
advertisement for which was issued on Thursday.
Marathi and Konkani are other two languages, whose knowledge is made
desirable for the post. Total one post is advertised by the
department.
Minister for Fisheries Vinod Palyekar has taken serious  note of the
matter and directed department to withdraw the advertisement
immediately.
“I have ordered director fisheries to immediately withdraw the
advertisement. This is totally unacceptable,” he said.

involved in releasing such advertisement.
