Kaithal, Jan 28 (UNI) Senior Congress leader S S Surjewala has demanded an inquiry in the alleged irregularities committed in the selections made by the Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) and various other official selection committees during the Chautala regime.
Addressing a press conference here today, Mr Surjewala, a local MLA and president of All India Kisan Khet Mazdoor Congress, said the government should institute an inquiry to bring to surface the alleged irregularities in the selection procedures during the Chautala regime and all those found guilty should be prosecuted by the government.
''The revelations made recently in the infamous HCS Exam scam regarding selections for HCS, point towards grave irregularities in the selection procedure adopted by the HPSC.'' He said these revelations were tip of an iceberg and the government should institute an high powered inquiry to bring to surface similar irregularities committed during the Chautala government in the selections made by HPSC and other committees.
Mr Surjewala said it was strange that the previous government at the fag end of its tenure asked the HPSC chairman and all other members whose term was nearing completion to resign and appointed fresh chairman and members to ensure that they enjoyed fresh term of six years. ''All this goes to prove that then government led by Mr Chautala wanted to have its hold on the HPSC.'' In view of the revelations made in HCS selection scam, the HPSC chairman and all the other members should submit their resignations or they should be removed by the government to ensure complete transparency in the functioning of a constitutional institution like HPSC.
