Activist, BSP leader demand action on Telangana paper leak, unemployment
Well-known civil rights activist Prof G Haragopal expressed deep concern about the high rate of unemployment in the State and the country. He emphasized the need to enact an Employment Act that would make it mandatory to fill all existing vacancies in the State and Central government sector immediately. Speaking at a roundtable conference organized by Telangana Jana Samithi on the topic of “TSPSC paper leakage, government failure, and ordeal of unemployed,” Prof Haragopal highlighted the importance of employment in the slogan for the separate Telangana movement. He criticized the State government for the decadelong delay in recruitment and the leak of TSPSC question papers.
BSP State President and former IPS officer RS Praveen Kumar questioned the competence of the SIT probing the TSPSC question paper leak case. He alleged that the root cause lies in the official residence of the chief minister, Pragathi Bhavan, and demanded a CBI inquiry into the paper leakage scam and an inquiry by a sitting judge on the lapses in TSPSC.
At the conference, resolutions were passed demanding inquiries and actions to address the issue of employment and the TSPSC paper leakage scam. The conference was attended by several senior leaders, including former IAS officer Akunuri Murali, Prof PL Vishweshar Rao, PoW Jhansi, Venkatesh Chowhan, and others.
