If anyone has proof of irregularities, submit it to government: Gogoi

By Our Staff Reporter

Guwahati, May 19: The All Assam Students Union (AASU) today warned the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) that it will have to face a “democratic agitation” if irregularities continue in the examitions it conducts.

As protests continued over the alleged anomalies in the APSC results today, activists of the AJYCP burnt effigies of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and APSC chairman Rakesh Paul, demanding a CBI probe into the allegations.

“The APSC must maintain transparency in the examition and selection processes conducted by it,” AASU president Dipanka Kumar th and general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said in a statement, calling for reforms in the commission to restore the people’s faith in the body.

Expressing resentment that the commission is yet to come out with a clarification on the allegations surrounding the recent selection, the AASU warned, “If such irregularities continue, the commission should get ready to face a democratic agitation.”

The students body also flayed the Chief Minister for being “least concerned” about the matter.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, said in a statement that if any person has any document or evidence which points at irregularities in the recent examitions conducted by the APSC, it may be submitted to the government. “If we get any such concrete information from any person or organization, we will definitely institute an inquiry,” Gogoi said.
