GUWAHATI, March 18 - Accusing the State Government of displaying �shocking indifference� to rampant corruption taking place in recruitments, the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today announced a series of stirs demanding a thorough probe into the alleged corruption made in appointments in the Department of Panchayat and Rural Development and Janasanjog (Directorate of Information and Public Relations).

The stir will begin with a Statewide demonstration across all district headquarters on March 20.

In a statement, the AASU said that the Government which had come to power pledging zero tolerance on corruption had apparently taken a lenient view of large-scale corruption and illegalities in the departments, especially in recruitments for government jobs.

�The Government has not even deemed it fit to institute a judicial inquiry into the shocking cases of corruption laid bare by authentic media reports. Corruption, favouritism, nepotism, etc., have become routine with the Government looking the other way,� it said.

Pointing out that the Janasanjog which was under the Chief Minister, appointment letters were distributed after completing the examination and declaring the results within two days. �This is shocking to say the least and an impartial probe will expose everything but the Chief Minister has not uttered a single word over the disturbing developments,� it said.

The AASU said that merit must be the sole criterion for recruitment and the Government had no business to govern the State unless it upheld that principle without any compromise.
