The INLD MLA from Ellenabad, Abhay Chautala, slammed the ruling BJP-JJP dispensation for repeated incidents of recruitment examination paper leak and now the arrest of HPSC’s deputy secretary. “If the chief minister wants to prove himself, he should get all recruitments that were held in the last seven years in Haryana, probed by a High Court’s sitting Judge. In the last seven-year tenure of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, there had been over two dozen incidents of paper leak in which crores of rupees were exchanged by the officials and private persons to get candidates selected in those recruitments. Chairman of Haryana Staff Selection Commission was suspended for a few days, but was re-appointed on the same post again. Now another scandal has emerged in HPSC and its officer has been arrested with crores of rupees. Such scandals cannot take place without the patronage of the government.”
