Scores of Haryana Congress leaders and party workers were detained by the state police for protesting in Panchkula on Tuesday against the ‘recruitment scam’ under the BJP-JJP government.

Senior Congress leaders including Vivek Bansal , in-charge of party affairs in Haryana, Kumari Selja, President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, Randeep Singh Surjewala, General Secretary, All India Congress Committee, Chandramohan, former Deputy Chief Minister, Kuldeep Bishnoi and thousands of party workers, who were heading to to gherao the Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) in a peaceful manner were detained by the police.

While addressing a gathering, Vivek Bansal said that corruption is rampant under the BJP-JJP government of Haryana. By doing such a huge recruitment scam, not only the future of unemployed youth has been played with, but they have been mocked, he said.

He said that it is absolutely clear that the government was fully involved in this recruitment scam.

He warned the JJP and independent MLAs that the one who supports the corrupt is as guilty as the one who commits corruption. He said that the way people had opposed the BJP and its supporters due to the anti-agriculture laws, if the pro-BJP MPs or MLAs do not take lessons from them, they may face similar situations in future also.

Vivek Bansal thanked the party workers who gathered in thousands for the gherao and said that this is the beginning of the fight, and this struggle will continue till this corrupt government is not uprooted.

Kumari Selja said that today's burning issue is the recruitment scam, which has left all the scams behind. She said that Haryana Public Service Commission and Haryana Staff Selection Commission have become a hotbed of recruitment scams and have been playing with the future of lakhs of unemployed youth of the state in collusion with the government.

She said that from the most prestigious HPSC Executive examinations to Group D examinations were sold in exchange of money, defeating the hopes of lakhs of hardworking unemployed youth.

Selja said that in the last seven years of the Khattar government, not so many recruitments were conducted as there were recruitment scams. More than 30 paper leak cases were reported during the seven-year tenure of the BJP government led by Manohar Lal Khattar, who used to raise the slogans of 'Na Kharchi-Na Parchi', she said.

Speaking on the occasion, Randeep Singh Surjewala said that the future of the youth of Haryana is being sold by bidding in mandi. Every worthy son and daughter of Haryana is feeling cheated. He said that recruitments are being auctioned by Dushyant Chautala and Manohar Lal Khattar by putting up rate lists and different amounts are being collected for different jobs.

He said that so many difficult questions are asked in the recruitment examinations that even Khattar, who talks about 'Na Kharchi-Na Parchi', 'merit' and 'transparency', cannot answer them. Cornering the BJP-JJP government with questions, he asked whether the Deputy Secretary alone could commit such a big fraud and how did the brokers reach the secret branch of HPSC where the Chief Minister himself could not go. He said that from all this evidence, it becomes clear that the entire matter is questionable. Former leader of Congress Legislative Party Kiran Choudhary said that the BJP-JJP government has broken all records of corruption.

There is big fraud in government jobs, she said, adding that this government does not want to give jobs to youth and the jobs, which are being given, are also given by following corrupt practices. Capt. Ajay Yadav, former minister, said that if the Haryana government has the courage to bring out the truth about the recruitment scams, then both the commissions should be reconstituted immediately by sacking them. He also demanded that the scam is investigated under the supervision of a Chief Justice of the High Court so that the truth could prevail.
