GUWAHATI, Aug 22 - The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today alleged that the State government led by Tarun Gogoi has gone against the legal process by appointing persons against those posts reserved for Assam Public Service Commission (APSC)-selected candidates, while a case is pending in the Gauhati High Court on the latest APSC selection.
In a statement here, the KMSS said that though the Chief Minister has been claiming that there was no court injunction on making appointments against such posts, the fact remains that the court has not issued any directive in favour of such appointments. The act of the State government is quite contemptuous against the court, said the Samiti.
Meanwhile, the Samiti said that Governor PB Acharya has asked the Chief Minister in a letter to institute a comprehensive inquiry into the APSC affairs and to keep in abeyance appointment against all the posts meant to be filled up by those selected by the APSC.
The Governor in his letter dated July 7, 2015 (D O No GSA 21/2010/237) said that he had received several serious allegations against the present APSC Chairman and some members of the Commission from several quarters. The allegations prima facie seemed to be true. If these allegations finally come true then the integrity and eligibility of the Chairman and those members would prove to be doubtful.
The Governor has also differed with the State government�s decision to institute a probe into only five cases of irregularities committed by the APSC, said the Samiti.
