“Haryana’s recruitment and job sales scam” is bigger than “Vyapam scam”: Surjewala

Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala attacked the BJP-JJP government over the Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) recruitment scam.

He said that HPSC has now become ‘Haryana Post Sales Counter’ under the Khattar.

“Now, one thing is absolutely clear before the people of Haryana that Khattar Saheb has been misleading crores of the youth of the state of Haryana for the last seven years by raising false slogans of getting the job ‘Bina Parchi, Bina Kharchi’, while “Mandi of job sales” continued in Haryana,” said Surjewala

“After the arrest of HPSC – ‘Haryana Post Sales Counter’ deputy secretary and HCS officer, Anil Nagar, Ashwini Kumar, and others, it has now become clear that ‘Job recruitment and job sales scam’ in Haryana is bigger than the biggest job scam of the country, ‘Vyapam scam,” he added.

“The responsibility and accountability of playing with the future of the youth of Haryana lie with the Chief Minister-Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana. The youth of Haryana demand that Khattar – Dushyant Chautala should accept their responsibility and answer the following points:-

HPSC i.e. ‘Haryana Public Service Commission’ has become “Haryana Post Sales Counter”. The rates for each post are fixed. Shell out Rs. 25 lakh and become a Dental Surgeon. Shell out ₹ 20 lakhs, and pass the preliminary paper of HCS. Give ₹1 crore and become an HCS officer. Give ₹ 50 lakh and get an appointment as a Naib Tehsildar.

“It is the statement of their very own HPSC Deputy Secretary, Anil Nagar, who was caught red-handed last week while taking cash of Rs 1 crore, has given this confessional statement to Khattar Sahib’s Vigilance department. Anil Nagar was a blue-eyed officer of the Khattar government. Even otherwise, you can also call him the representative of the Alliance. Anil Nagar got recruited by the Chautala government in the year 2004 and after 12 years ie in the year 2016, the Khattar government offered him the joining. From Haryana Board to HPSC, he continued to get postings on important posts. This would not have been possible without some ‘big blessing’. The question arises as to who, how, and why gave the responsibility of managing and maintaining the secrecy of all important recruitments to such a junior HCS officer, who has joined the service only 4 years back, while bypassing the IAS level HPSC Secretary?” he asked.

He accused the Haryana Government of privatizing the recruitment commission.

“The Khattar government indirectly privatized both the recruitment commissions and conduct of examinations in the name of improving recruitment. Private companies are preparing papers, private companies are managing the centers. Private companies are issuing roll numbers; private companies are conducting recruitment exams. Private companies are scanning OMR sheets, private companies are preparing results.Private companies are making decisions on objections to the answer keys.Everything is in the hands of private companies and their contractual employees like Ashwini Sharma, who has no fixed accountability,” he added.

Congress leader demanded HPSC and HSSC commissions to be dismissed without any further delay and fair investigation in the matter.
