In a shocking move, the Chhattisgarh government has appointed the son of a late Congress leader as Deputy Collector without clearing any entrance examination. To get appointed for this post, one has to qualify the state’s Civil Services Examination conducted by the Chhattisgarh Public Service Commission (CGPSC).
Ashish Karma is the son of Congress leader Mahendra Karma who was killed in 2013 by the Naxalite insurgents of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) in Darbha Valley of Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district. In the attack, total 28 people were killed including Congress leaders, CRPF soldiers and cops of state’s police force.
The controversial decision of Ashish Karma’s appointment was taken by CM Bhupesh Baghel. The filthy display of power and favoritism by the Congress government has left many fuming, especially the aspirants who have been studying hard to get selection in the prestigious job.
