Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday said that the recruitment process in the union territory was fair and if anyone proves otherwise, he will leave Jammu and Kashmir. This is the first time in the history that the result of J&K Administrative Service Examination was declared within three hours of the interview of the last candidate. His remarks come amid criticism of the government’s decision to appoint Aptech, an already blacklisted agency, to conduct the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board recruitment exam.
He said, “Questions have been raised on the selection. For the first time after independence, in the J&K Administrative Services exam, the final candidate was interviewed and the result was declared within three hours.”
Sinha said, “If someone alleges that a fake recruitment has been done, I will leave Jammu and Kashmir the very next minute.”
Addressing a gathering on the occasion of the inauguration of the Tulip Garden here, Sinha said that wherever complaints have been received, probe has been ordered from the country’s premier investigative agency, the CBI.
He said, “Many people have been arrested and I want to assure people that no one will be spared, even if they are powerful. They will be punished severely as per the law and constitution of the country.”
Referring to the dismissal of several government employees and criticism by politicians, Sinha said 47 people were sacked for their alleged involvement in terrorism and anti-national activities.
He said, “Those who recruited 1.5 lakh people through backdoor have no moral right to question. Let them introspect.” He said that his administration will not take any wrong decision under anyone’s pressure.
He said that some people, who have acquired huge wealth by indulging in corruption, are opposing the imposition of wealth tax in the Union Territory.
