Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party president Bandi Sanjay Kumar will sit on a day-long hunger strike at the state party headquarters on Friday demanding that the state government order a judicial inquiry by a sitting high court judge into the leakage of examination paper of the recruitment test conducted by the Telangana State Public Service Commission.
Sanjay also demanded immediate sacking of state information technology minister K T Rama Rao from the cabinet, as his IT department had failed to prevent the leakage of the question paper, besides complete overhaul of the TSPSC and payment of compensation of Rs 1 lakh to each of the unemployed youth who had suffered due to cancellation of the examination.
On Thursday morning, the BJP president went to Chanchalguda Central Prison to call on the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leaders, who were arrested while protesting at the TSPSC office on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters later, Sanjay strongly condemned the lathi-charge and arrest of BJYM state president Bhanu Prakash and others who were doing peaceful protest over the leakage of TSPSC question paper. “While the accused in the leakage case are being given royal treatment, those who took part in the protests are subject to harassment,” he alleged.
Sanjay sought to know how the question paper was leaked without the knowledge of TSPSC chairman. “In fact, the TSPSC officials should be prosecuted first. The constitution of a SIT is just a hoax as it would not serve any purpose. Many SITs constituted in the past did not yield any results,” he said.
Stating that the entire episode was a drama enacted by KCR’s son K T Rama Rao, Sanjay wondered why the state government was hesitating to order a judicial probe by a sitting high court judge.
