CM boasts of merit-based recruitment

CM boasts of merit-based recruitmentChief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today showcased his government’s transparency in governance which, he claimed, was leading to an administrative systemic change paving the way for merit-based selections and transfers.Speaking at the one-day special session of the Vidhan Sabha, Khattar claimed that the government had put in place a transparent system of administration replacing the old one that was notorious for rampant corruption and nepotism. He asserted a scheme was being prepared to ensure that the youth of Haryana got the maximum job opportunities in the government and private sectors.Detailing his government’s initiatives, he said marks for interview had been restricted to only 12 per cent which left little room for favouritism. “Everybody was aware of the history of recruitment in the state when jobs were given through the back door. We have ensured that only eligible people get government jobs,” the Chief Minister said.Earlier, transfers were a big business . “To ensure transparency in the transfer of teachers, we have implemented a unique transfer policy so that teachers are not required to come to Chandigarh with transfer requests”, Khattar said.Khattar’s speech was marred by a walkout by Congress leaders, including Kiran Chaudhry, Kuldeep Sharma, Geeta Bhukkal and Rahubir Kadian in protest against Speaker Kanwar Pal’s ‘refusal’ to give them time to speak.However, undeterred by the Congress walkout, Khattar made a special mention of how he ‘renounced’ his discretion in the grant of CLU permissions which was enjoyed by the successive Chief Ministers since1991.The Chief Minister said that the state government had also implemented a new scheme to provide honorarium to the educated unemployed youth in the state. Under this scheme, a honorarium of Rs 9,000 would be given in lieu of 100 hours of work in a month.
