Raj Bhavan, Government of Karnataka
Sub: Condemning KPSC Government jobs for sale.
Respected Sir / Madam,
Campus Front of India condemns in the strongest terms the unfortunate events unfolded such as, The Karnataka Public Service Commission, which is responsible for recruiting candidates for the state level civil services (Karnataka Administration Service, Karnataka Police Service, Forestry Service), has allegedly put up government jobs for sale. Former minister and senior Congress leader B K Chandrashekar has alleged that some members of the Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) are demanding Rs 40-45 lakh as graft from KAS aspirants who have been selected for interview.
A regional TV news channel recently carried out a sting operation in which “agents” of KPSC members were shown seeking payments worth Rs 40 lakh to Rs 70 lakh for important posts of Tahsildar and Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) from qualifying candidates, who were set to face the final interview (personality test) after having cleared the preliminary and mains examination.
To make matters worse, one of the successful candidates, Dr Maithri, alleged that she was approached by the KPSC members who asked for Rs 70 lakh for ‘A’ grade post (Assistant Commissioner). Dr Maithri (Scheduled Tribe) had scored 1009 marks in the mains examination and was preparing for the interview. One post of the Assistant Commissioner was reserved for the ST category. That’s when she allegedly received a call from the KPSC members asking for bribe. But when Dr Maithri refused, she was awarded only 75 marks in the interview round. Incidentally, candidates, who had scored less than her in the mains, were awarded higher marks of 150 in the same round. Dr Maithri lost the Assistant Commissioner’s post to her contender, who had scored less than her in the mains. KPSC members had sought bribe from the candidates to grant higher marks during the interview rounds. Lack of action towards these cases, lengthy trials has added fuel to this trend.
We demand the state government is entitled to initiate action against the erring members under Article 317 of the Constitution and also Government of India to take strict actions towards the guilty, and ensure fast trial and punish the culprits as soon as possible. Government must ensure that there is no repetition of it.
Thanks & Regards
