Alleging scam in the process for recruitment of police constables and sub inspectors, Congress party on Saturday demanded a high-level probe into all the recruitments and re-conduct of exams.
Addressing a press conference, All India Congress Committee (AICC) spokesperson Sravan Dasoju said that the Telangana State Level Police Recruitment Board (TSLPRB) issued five separate notifications for recruitment of 18,435 police constables and sub inspectors on various posts. It also collected an application fee of over ₹ 1,000 each from 7,19,840 job aspirants.
However, he said that the Board failed to conduct the recruitment tests in a scientific and fool-proof manner. He said for the first time, the Board used Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags for physical fitness tests. The RFID works were assigned to a private agency eSoft. However, the discrepancies in use of RFID tags deprived thousands of jobless youth an opportunity to get a police job, he alleged.
