Will not intervene in civic volunteers' recruitment process: HC
The division Bench comprising Nishita Mhatre, the acting Chief Justice of Calcutta high court and Justice Tapabrata Chakraborty, dismissed the directive of Justice Sanjib Banerjee over the recruitments of civic volunteers.
The division Bench on Wednesday directed that the court would not intervene in the procedure of recruiting civic volunteers.
It should be recalled that a few months earlier, the Calcutta high court asked the state government to explain the process of interview to recruit civic volunteers. The court wanted to know, in what basis, the civic volunteers were recruited by the government. The division Bench of acting Chief Justice Nishita Mhatre, then asked the Advocate General of state government, Kishor Dutta, that whether the mark sheets of Madhyamik examination, age proof, NCC certificates were properly checked. The Advocate General had replied that the transparency was intensely maintained during the process of recruitment. Only some unsuccessful candidates are spreading canards saying that the process was not transparent and trying to malign the government.
It may also be mentioned that the High Court earlier had directed the state government to cancel the appointment of civic volunteers in Barikul and Sarenga police station areas in Bankura district. The state government was directed by the High Court to form a 3-member committee headed by the state finance secretary to prepare fresh guidelines for the recruitment examination.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has welcomed the verdict of Calcutta High Court on Wednesday.
