Amaravati: Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan has asked the Andhra Pradesh government to enquire into the village secretariat paper leak allegations. He criticised the YSRC leaders on Twitter on the recently concluded job process. Mr Pawan said that the youth should not feel despair by the inaction of the government.
He came down on the YSRC government saying that the jobs seem to have bee given to followers of YSRC leaders. He was trolled for this remark. Netizens said that Pawan Kalyan was being a puppet in the hands of TD president Chandrababu Naidu.
Mr Pawan went on to say that the hopes of lakhs of youth were shattered by the alleged controversy.
Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, Mr Pawan said, “Transparency is not meant only for speeches. It should translate into actions.”
His remarks come at a time when the Telugu Desam is also making a hue and cry over the alleged malpractice in the village secretariat jobs. TD chief Chandrababu Naidu demanded an immediate enquiry into the matter.
The examinations for 12 categories of posts at the village level were conducted from September 1 to 8. The results were declared on September 19. Some media channels had reported that the question paper was leaked and few members in APPSC benefitted in the village secretariat jobs. TD has demanded an enquiry into the allegations.
The government has condemned the rumours and allegations and said that there is no ‘paper leak’ in the examinations. Panchayat raj minister P. Ramachadra Reddy called the allegations baseless. He said, “The government has made all the arrangements to continue to verify the certificates of the candidates who qualified in the village secretariat examinations. District collectors have geared up for the process which starts from Sunday.”
