New Delhi: (09/04/2019) Swaraj India leader, Anupam with Nationwide youth movement Yuva Halla Bol on Tuesday presented RTI documents to Allegedly expose Modi govt’s for granting one-year extension of tenure to its chairman, Ashim Khurana.
Yuva Halla Bol leader and Chief Spokesperson of Swaraj India, Anupam, laid serious allegations against Modi government that is already under fire for giving SSC Chairman Ashim Khurana an illegal service-extension in violation of all rules.
Addressing the Media he said,
“Based on documents accessed through RTI, Anupam said that not only was the extension given to Ashim Khurana in 2018 illegal, but even his appointment in 2015 is under serious question. Staff Selection Commission is among the biggest recruiting agencies of India, through which annually 20 million young people dream of getting a job and bright future. Nationwide protests took place in 2018 against corruption, irregularities and paper leak in SSC and chairman Ashim Khurana was at the centre of students’ anger during these protests.”
He further said, “Under the pressure of protests, the Government was forced to order a CBI enquiry but even after one year, investigations haven’t been completed, guilty have not been punished and students haven’t been able to get justice. The matter was brought to Supreme Court through senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan against irregularities in recruitment. It’s clear from CBI’s FIR that the massive scam was one of the results of collusion between SSC officers and the private vendor Sify technologies.”
“The experience of the last five years has made it clear that not only is the Modi government anti-youth but also incompetent and insensitive when it comes to addressing unemployment in the country. Noted lawyer and anti-corruption crusader Prashant Bhushan has filed a PIL in Delhi High Court for quashing Ashim Khurana’s appointment as SSC Chairman,” added Anupam.
