Why ‘efficient’ probe agencies like ED, CBI fail to nab people involved in paper leak incidents: Vijay Wadettiwar
He also targeted the Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government over the paper leak incidents, and asked it to take steps to curb such malpractices. “After the talathi recruitment fiasco, there have been instances of paper leaks on similar hiring procedures of the Mumbai police and state forest department. Why did efficient investigative agencies like the ED and CBI fail to nab those person behind it?” asked the leader of the opposition in the Maharashtra assembly in a statement.
Last month, the examination to recruit talathis (revenue department employees) in Maharashtra was delayed due to technical reasons. Criticizing the state government comprising the Shiv Sena led by Eknath Shinde, the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Nationalist Congress Party faction led by Ajit Pawar, Wadettiwar said, “It seems a huge amount of money has been used for forming the government. this.
It seems that the leakage of exam papers is a new way of filling their own coffers which have become empty during the formation of this dispensation.” Not a single exam conducted in the past few months has taken place without incidents of leakage of paper, he said.
“The state government should take some steps to check such malpractices and conduct new exams for these posts,” said the former state minister. The government is gambling with the future of young people who are desperately looking for jobs, he said. “Recruitment should not be pursued and completed when transparency in these exams is in question,” he said.
