    CM Sonowal is influencing the police to divert the SI Exam’s probe: Debabrata Saikia

    GUWAHATI: Expressing his concern over the recently exposed Assam police job scam, Leader of Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly Debabrata Saikia on Monday alleged that Assam’s chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal is influencing the police into diverting the investigation into a maze.     

    Saikia said, “The need of the hour is to institute an enquiry by a sitting judge of the Gauhati High Court to get to the bottom of the matter, but one gets the impression that Chief Minister Sonowal, who is charge of the Home Department, is influencing the police into diverting the investigation into a maze.”

    The Leader of opposition stressed that each and every recruitment test conducted by various departments during the tenure of the incumbent state government has been marred by severe irregularities and several deprived candidates have been forced to knock on the doors of the Gauhati High Court.

    “It has been already revealed that some police officials and BJP leaders were offering jobs to numerous candidates in lieu of cash. There may be another aspect to this issue, namely, that some jobs were earmarked for sale to anyone willing to pay hard cash while the remaining jobs were reserved for candidates who believe in a certain ideology. In this context, I would like to mention that certain officials of the Assam Olympic Association and Assam Cricket Association were reportedly collecting money from some candidates by promising jobs under the sports quota,” Saikia said.

    Saikia asserted that an enquiry by a sitting judge of the Gauhati High Court should be instituted without delay to probe every aspect of the scam.

    “The Government should not make the mistake of holding the written test for recruitment of SIs till such time as the judicial probe ascertains whether any member of the SLPRB is involved in the scandal,” Saikia added.
