Ramadoss accused Centre of trying to meddle with UPSC appointments
Founder of PMK S.Ramadoss has accused the Centre’s trying to make changes in the appointment of civil services like IAS and IPS. He said allotting cadres by the merit base on several services, however, he has proposed the 10%of the of total marks be allowed for during training. “After the training period, the candidates will be graded and a new merit list will be prepared after adding up the scores. This is wrong and could be used to filter candidates who were not liked”, he claimed.
Ramadoss said, “The Centre attempted to change the system last year when it tried to use marks scored during the training period to decide postings. Following severe criticism from political parties, the motion was withdrawn. What is the need to bring it up again? They are trying to ensure that those close to IAS officers at the Centre and to the ruling establishment in New Delhi alone get plum posts,” he said.
Meanwhile, Tamilaga Valvurimai Katchi founder T.Velmurugaan asked the Opposition parties to get together and oppose the “anti-democratic Bills” issued in Lok Sabha, by Right Information Act. He said the National Investigation Agency Bill was draconian in nature.
