Yet another day of the Assembly was washed out on Monday without transacting much business as the Government stood firm on its position over JPSC row.
Sending out no signal to concede to the demands of the Opposition, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Saryu Roy even challenged the aggrieved to seek the court’s intervention in the case if there is any doubt in mind.
“We have not received the recommendations from the JPSC as of now. Even then, I can say that objections of the Opposition and others have no merit. They say why numbers of vacancies were changed? It was because the Home Depatment had by mistake sent some backlog vacancies as regular to the Commission which would have deprived the reserved sections. As far as publication of result ahead of the court’s verdict is concerned, there was no stay on this. Still, the applicants can go to the court if they feel it is a case of contempt,” said Roy, replying to the reporters outside the House.
