Without naming anyone, BJP national secretary Ramen Deka urged Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal to take stern action against the BJP MLA whose five relatives are APSC officers now.
Deka said that there are allegations that five members of a BJP legislator from Assam made it to the selection list of APSC when Rakesh Paul was the chairman of the Commission but they were yet to be brought to the purview of investigation.
“There was allegation against daughter of former Lok Sabha MP RP Sarmah for her involvement in the scam. She was arrested. However, some of the people whose name is often linked to the scam, are yet to be interrogated,” said Deka.
Although Deka did not mention anyone, it was quite clear that Deka was referring to Mangaldai MLA Guru Jyoti Das.
Reportedly, the five family members of the BJP MLA secured appointment “by manipulating” the examination conducted by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC).
Das’ wife Leena Das, sisters-in-law Nirmali Das and Shikha Rani Das and brothers-in-law Bhargav Moni Das and Monideep Das are Assam Government’s gazetted officers.
