Leader of Opposition MK Stalin has urged the state government to immediately order CBI probe into TNPSC, Teacher’s Eligibility Test (TET) and TN Uniform Services Recruitment Board scams rocking the state.
Some candidates, who have raised doubts over selection of many candidates from a centre in Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami’s native Salem district, have told media that they have complained about the same to the CM, added Stalin in a messaged posted on his official Facebook page. Wondering if the investigation has been started on the scams, the DMK president said, “If it has not been started, it should be done immediately and the culprits arrested forthwith.”
“Following TNPSC Group-I and 2A, VAO, police and TET scams have also surfaced. The government should order a CBI probe covering all recruitment scams without any delay,” the Leader of Opposition exhorted.
Earlier, the DMK chief had demanded the resignation of state Personnel Minister D Jayakumar for the TNPSC recruitment scam, which he defined as a Himalayan scam larger than the Vyapam scam.
The principal opposition had even petitioned Governor Banwarilal Purohit, urging him to sack Jayakumar if the government fails to do so. A few MLAs of the party met the Governor and handed over the petition on behalf of the deputy legislature party leader and party treasurer Duraimurugan.
