GUWAHATI, June 18 - The State Government today pleaded before the Gauhati High Court against granting stay order on the letter of termination served by it to the tainted State Government officials accused in the cash-for-job scam in the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC).
The accused had earlier moved the Court seeking a stay order on their termination from their offices after they were arrested in connection with the case. The Court, however, after hearing both the prosecution and the defence, fixed July 30 as the next date of hearing.
The State Government was represented by advocates Maninder Singh and Nalin Kohli, who have been roped in from New Delhi.
Talking to media persons, Kohli said that the matter is very serious as it pertains to securing jobs through payment of money.
�During our legal argument, we would place on record whether the person who has himself confessed to have paid money to secure job, can be reinstated in Government jobs. It is a matter of public trust. Can they be trusted by the public? We will bring several related Supreme Court orders before the notice of the Court,� senior advocate Kohli told media persons.
