Akhil Gogoi Attacks Assam Govt over P&RD Appointments
GUWAHATI: Akhil Gogoi criticized the Sarbananda Sonowal led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government and termed the recruitment process in the Panchayat and Rural Development (P&RD) Department as a bigger scam than the APSC scam.
Gogoi said that the government should not have announced the appointments when the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has submitted its investigation report citing irregularities in the recruitment exam.
Addressing the media in Guwahati, the KMSS leader announced an agitation programme against the state government for the alleged irregularities which marred the appointments.
It is to be mentioned that the CID has submitted the investigation report of the anomalies in the recruitment examination for vacant posts in the P&RD Department which was held in May, 2018 across the state.
According to reports, there were massive irregularities in 18 examination centres of nine districts.
