AGARTALA, Jan 7 (TIWN): Within 21 months of a Govt, various corruptions, violation of guidelines have been exposed although Chief Minister Biplab Deb has continued to claim that BJP Govt is following “Transparent” recruitment policy. Earlier, illegal tender for cancer medicine purchasing was exposed under the Health Dept and then cancellation of existing recruitment’s decision also faced a major blow when High ordered Tripura Govt to recruit TPS officers cancelling Govt’s decision of recruitment-cancellation. Then recently allegation raised against Education Dept for leaking question papers under Ratanlal Nath. Amid all these, another expose of corruption reported when High Court of Tripura cancelled illegally recruited 5 APP recruitments.

After the hearing, Advocate Purushottom Roy Barman said, “Today in Highway a division bench of Chief Justice A.A.Kureshi and Justice Arindam Lodh has cancelled the advertisement of APP recruitment in Udaipur Lower Court, Gomati District. The verdict says that the advertisement is illegal and unlawful. The judgement said that no Govt can violate the procedures of recruitment while appointing the APP and Govt can not do as it wishes. The two petitioners will be now appointed within 2 months by the Govt under High Court’s order. In last May month, Gomati District DM published an advertisement for recruitment and accordingly various lawyers appealed for the post and a selection list was made after interviews. In the list, lawyer Pakhi Dey and Joyesh Dey scored highest but didn’t get jobs”.

“In reply, State Govt strangely said that State Govt doesn’t need to follow any guideline for recruitment. We argued, under Article 14 Govt does not have any right to do according to its wish and Govt has to be transparent in recruitment. High Court accepted our point and cancelled recruitment of 5 advocates and asked to recruit these 2 petitioners within 2 months”, Purushottom Roy Barman told media.

“This case is very important as Govt has argued that it can do anything in recruitment. Indirectly it wanted to say that Govt can recruit their party people……..indeed it’s a dangerous statement !”, added Barman.
