Congress demands forensic testing of police exam answer sheets
GPYCC Chairman Says Congress Will Address Court To Further Exposure BJP’s Corrupt Practice Of Selling Jobs
PANJIM: The Goa Pradesh Youth Congress Committee (GPYCC) on Friday demanded a forensic test of the police exam answer sheets, where the number of candidates who scored poorly on written exams for the Constable’s post, scored high for the post of Deputy Police Inspector (PSI).
GPYCC chairman Varad Mardolkar claimed there had been complete manipulation in the conduct of written exams within the police department. BJP Mandal de Sanvordem chairman had given three jobs to members of his family, he alleged. A member of the IT department of the BJP had given a job to his wife. The BJP PRO gave his brother-in-law a job, Varad said.
Speaking to reporters, Mardolkar said Congress will address the court to further expose the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) corrupt practice of selling jobs.
Mardolkar said that a candidate who responded for the constable position scored 28 points, while for the PSI exam the same candidate scored 99 points. “I would have understood if it was a single case. But there are a number of candidates who failed the constable exam and scored more than 90 points on the PSI exam, ”he said.
Mardolkar alleged that the candidates left the answer sheets blank and that they were written up later by the examiner. “A forensic test will uncover this act,” he said.
“In the past, we had shown how manipulation was performed for junior engineer and technical assistant positions in PWD. Now the same modus operandi has been used for police stations. The BJP does an injustice to deserving candidates, ”said Adv Mardolkar.
Mardolkar has called on the BJP to immediately drop the hiring process, failing which Congress will take the lead in doing justice to deserving candidates.
Adv Mardolkar accused the BJP government of assigning positions to the parents and family members of their officials. “There are many instances where family members of BJP Mandal presidents and officials are employed,” he said.
GPCC medical cell chairman Amarnath Panjikar said BJP lawmakers previously exposed this job sale act, which the government is still continuing. “The BJP prevents deserving candidates from getting government jobs,” he said.
