Jharkhand Assembly Speaker Dinesh Oraon, after hearing the clarification given by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Saryu Roy that the Government did not have any constitutional right to interfere in the working of Jharkhand Public Service Commission, asked whether the commission was above the law and Government helpless before it. Speaker however left it to the Government to take a decision in this regard.
“Questions have been raised on all examinations conducted by the JPSC till the date, which could not be denied. There is also a coordination between the legislator, judiciary and executive and it won’t be appropriate that they interfere in each other’s activities. Then a question arises, whether JPSC is above the law and Government is helpless before it? Government might be, but the House could never be helpless,” said the Speaker.
Oraon was speaking in the house after a discussion on the issue of JPSC that has rejected candidature of around 600 students in Mains examination for not filling Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheets during the fifth civil services examination.
