Launching a scathing attack on the former Chief Minster, Jai Ram Thakur for cheating the youth and playing with their future by turning a blind eye to the recruitment process, Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Anirudh Singh and Chief Parliamentary Secretary Ashish Butail said that paper leaks during the tenure of the previous government was almost a routine affair to which the then BJP government led by Jai Ram Thakur didn’t bother to inquire into. He said that during his tenure papers were sold to a few selected persons for money-making and this racketeering continued unabated.
The future of lakhs of youth was at stake and only Jai Ram Thakur was responsible for the same. Both the leaders said that Jai Ram Thakur is responsible for the pendency of results of all the examinations held by the now-disbanded Staff Selection Commission Hamirpur. Not only this, the police recruitment paper leak case is also the handiwork of the previous BJP government and Jai Ram Thakur did not take any action against any of the culprits while being the Chief Minister.
The Duo said that the State Government under the leadership of Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu started the process of getting the results of those ‘post codes’ which are out of the purview of Vigilance investigation. He said that the results of a few ‘post codes’ have been declared and the results of other recruitments will also be out soon. The present government has also taken up the matter with the Himachal Pradesh Public Service Commission to expedite the recruitment process.
The former Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, who played with the future of the youth for five years, is now questioning the tenure of the present government which has hardly completed its six months. The present government is taking several effective steps to act tough against the culprits who are playing with the future of the youth.
Anirudh Singh and Ashish Butail said that the state government was committed to protect the interests of the youth. Recently, the Cabinet has given approval to fill the posts of about six thousand teachers in the education department and the process of filling up the vacant posts in other departments was going on. He said that more posts will also be created in the government sector by the present state government in future so that more and more employment opportunities can be ensured to the youth.
