The Siddaramaiah government was unresponsive to many scams related to recruitment tests and PU exams.It was a government that covered up many such scams,Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.
Speaking to media persons at Mysuru airport Bommai said,during the Siddaramaiah regime the recruitment committee head himself was an accused in a police recruitment scam.
Siddaramaiah,who claims to have provided a clean government, had handed over the case to CID only after the name of the accused figured in the FIR.However they buried the case later.
The scam related to PU exam, in which Rs.18 cr was collected by those involved with promises of promoting the students who paid money,was also buried without taking any action against the culprits.
They refused to respond even when we in the opposition raised the issue strongly in the legislature session.It was a cover up government,Bommai said.
For the first time in the state our government has not only suspended a high ranking officer,but even arrested him and the investigation is on,” Bommai said.
