Mullappally urges govt to release statistics on backdoor appointments and oust unqualified
Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran on Wednesday urged the government to release data on all alleged backdoor appointments in the state and cancel the appointments of all unqualified/undeserved.
He was addressing the media at the venue of the protest staged by PSC rank holders outside the Secretariat here.
The government has made over 10,000 appointments. They should clarify whether a decision to cancel all these appointments were taken in the cabinet meeting, he stated.
Ramachandran also alleged that the state government took the decision to halt regularisation of temporary employees after the High Court asked them for an explanation regarding appointment guidelines. There are lakhs of youth included in PSC rank lists awaiting appointments. Will the government take measures to appoint all the deserving candidates? If not, the present move of the government can be viewed only as a betrayal, he added.
“The CM has taken a decision to cheat the candidates without cancelling the backdoor appointments. It is protest worthy that the government is not ready to hold talks with the rank holders. A ruler should be dedicated, honest and transparent. He/she should not cheat the public. But unfortunately it is exactly what is happening in Kerala,” he alleged adding that "if UDF is voted to power, the backdoor appointments will be examined and unqualified or undeserving will be ousted from service."
