AASU (All Assam Students’ Union) On Appointment Scams In The DIPR

GUWAHATI: The AASU (All Assam Students’ Union) is going to demonstrate in all district headquarters on March 20 in protest against the appointment scams in the DIPR (Directorate of Information and Public Relations) and the P&RD (Panchayat & Rural Development) department. The students’ body is going to announce its next phase of protest after the Holi.

In a statement issued to the press on March 18, AASU president Dipanko Kumar Nath and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said that the selection of candidates for jobs from among lakhs of candidates should be strictly based on merit under a transparent selection process. “However, massive anomalies and nepotism have been seen in the appointment of candidates for jobs in the DIPR and the P&RD department this year. Even after the anomalies have been published in the media in detail, the State government is not in a position to make any statement on it. The Chief Minister, who speaks of zero tolerance to corruption, doesn’t seem to have guts to order a judicial inquiry into the appointment anomalies. The CID has also clearly stated on the anomalies in the appointments. The appointments were issued before the CID report being published. This has been done only to keep the scam under the wrap,” Nath said.

The two student leaders said that in the DIPR under the Chief Minister the results of the written examination were declared on the very day of holding the examination. This, according to the AASU duo, is 100 per cent under doubt. Any judicial inquiry can bring the anomalies to the fore, but the Chief Minister is maintaining a stoic silence on the issue, they said.

The students’ union’s message is loud and clear that ‘it won’t tolerate any mischief on the future of lakhs unemployed and the deprived unemployed should get justice’.
