Chandigarh: Countering the allegations of”large-scale bungling in police recruitment” made by Congress, the Haryana Government today said “complete transparency” has been adopted in the process.
“Complete transparency has been adopted during police recruitment, whereas there used to be political interference in recruitment during tenure of previous governments,” state Finance Minister Abhimanyu told the Assembly replying to a question raised by senior Congress member Kiran Choudhary.
Choudhary alleged that record timings for completing the runs during the recruitment process were being claimed by some candidates in the recent police recruitments which had raised eyebrows.
Her party colleague Randeep Singh Surjewala had a few days back told reporters outside the Assembly there were “large scale bungling in the police recruitments”.
Abhimanyu said some candidates claimed they had completed their runs in time “lesser than Olympics record” but when the court asked thme to authenticate their claim they could not.
Abhimanyu assured the House if such candidates, who had participated in police recruitment, can complete their runs in record time then the government would honour them with cash prize at par given to Olympics medal winners.
The Minister said Haryana State Selection Commission has also issued clarification in this regard after claims of fastest runs were made.
He said Opposition leaders may not have correct information about facts and all record of police recruitment is available on the Commission’s website.
Abhimanyu also told the Assembly, Haryana is among leading states in terms of Aadhaar penetration with 96 per cent registration.
The Assembly was also informed an outline has been prepared to make 200 services of various departments online and 125 e-services have already been implemented.
Auction of liquor vends of Excise and Taxation Department has been done through e-tendering.
Abhimanyu said that the government has a plan to bring Rs 5916.07 crore of 73 schemes of 15 departments under DBT during the year 2016-17.
He said the process of obtaining No Objection Certificate in Environment Department has been simplified.
He said that by making the services of Food and Supplies Department online, kerosene subsidy amounting to Rs 10.40 crore being taken illegally by ineligible 4.66 lakh people, out of total 11.05 lakh beneficiaries, was stopped, which would result in saving of Rs 125 crore annually. PTI
