The Federation of People’s Rights has sought a CBI probe into the alleged irregularities in the recruitment of deputy tahsildars as well as the purchase of free sarees and dhotis.
In a statement G Sugumaran, secretary of the Federation, stated that resolution to this effect had been adopted by the Federation.
Further he said that there was widespread news that a lot of irregularities had occurred in the recent selection of deputy tahsildars. The government should cancel the selection and initiate a fresh selection process, he said.
The chief secretary of the government stopped the purchase of dhotis and sarees intended for the free distribution scheme for Deepavali, thus preventing high scale corruption. The government should now take steps to distribute the free dhotis and sarees without delay.
In the notification issued by the police department for the recruitment of sub-inspector and constables, the existing reservation for BC, MBC, BCM, EBC, SC and ST was not followed properly.
The government should intervene in the matter and take steps for proper implementation of the communal reservation.
