Hyderabad, March 15: Former Minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir demanded a thorough investigation into the recent Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) question paper leak issue.
In a media statement on Wednesday, Shabbir Ali accused the BRS Government of attempting to cover up the case by constituting a Special Investigation Team (SIT). He pointed out that previous investigations by SITs formed for other cases, such as intermediate paper leakage, Alair and Nayeem encounters, drugs case, and other issues, have remained inconclusive.
Expressing concern for the transparency of the recruitment process, Shabbir Ali criticized Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao, for his silence on the matter and the lack of action against TSPSC Chairman and other officials responsible for the leak. He alleged that the BRS Government has caused mental anguish to thousands of job aspirants by not taking adequate measures to prevent leaks, especially in light of the intermediate question paper leak in the past, which had led to unfortunate incidents of student suicides.
Shabbir Ali demanded that CM KCR order a comprehensive probe by a sitting High Court judge to uncover the truth behind the TSPSC question paper leak case. He emphasized the need for the government to take preventive measures and explore new ways to ensure the integrity of the recruitment process and avoid further delay in filling job vacancies.
