The government should stop playing with the future of around 30 lakh youth and rather release a rate list for government jobs. Naveen Jaihind, former president, AAP, Haryana

He also showed a suitcase full of cash in full public view to “reflect the persistence of large-scale corrupt practices, including bribery, in recruitment examinations conducted by the HPSC”.

Protesters carried placards reading “Dental surgeon ka rate batao”, “Police ka rate batao”, and “Gram sachiv ka rate batao”. Some also held the tricolour in their hands.

Jaihind, while addressing protesters, said the government should stop playing with the future of around 30 lakh youths and rather release a rate list for government jobs. “The level of corruption has only gone up during the BJP rule,” he alleged.

Recently, the Vigilance Bureau, Haryana, had arrested HCS Anil Nagar, who was posted as HPSC Deputy Secretary, and two others for allegedly manipulating marks of candidates who appeared in a written examination for recruitment of dental surgeons, conducted by the commission on September 26. So far, the bureau has recovered over Rs3 crore from the suspects in the case.
