Shimla: The leader of Opposition has levelled serious allegations against the state government as he claimed that the Sukhvinder Singh-led state government has dissolved the HP Staff Selection Commission only to remove the chairman and its members.

HP Staff Selection Commission’s Chairman and its members were appointed by the previous Jairam Thakur government.

Jairam Thakur, while addressing the media in Shimla on Wednesday, asked Chief Minister to take strict action against the guilty. However, dissolving a Commission isn’t appropriate as it may hamper the recruitment process.
