  1. The same thing had happened in the appointment of Medical Officers also , but some raised objections and the govt. was supposed to do an inquiry but the matter has now been hushed up, mainly because the number of vacancy and the number of candidates were at par. This govt. is so corrupted, brilliant candidates with good academic careers were not appointed in the case of the appointment of Dentists the test of which was performed simultaneously. Let us try to our fullest so that this tyrant do not return as CM of this poor state.

  2. All the erring govt officials have to go now. This will be like to kill two birds with one stone. This will serve as a warning or “scarecrow” to shoo away these Govt officials from committing such mistake and at the same time letting the erring officials go will invite employment opportunity for the aspirants and youngsters directly or indirectly. Opps..i think i am dreaming.
