Panaji: Adv. Aires Rodrigues has today alleged

that the Goa Government by arbitrarily selecting BJP State Executive Committee member and RSS leader Mr. Sukhaji

Gajanan Naik as member of the very vital Goa Public Service Commission (GPSC)

had acted in total violation of the Supreme Court directives.

Adv.

Rodrigues has stated that the selection of 58 year old Sukhaji Naik who hails

from Colvale and currently Vice-Principal of Porvorim based RSS run Vidya

Prabodhini College as GPSC member was done without complying with the Supreme

Court directions that all State governments had to frame guidelines and

parameters for the appointment of Chairman and Members of their State Public Service

Commission.

Pointing

out that the requisite procedure was not followed in selecting Sukhaji Naik as

member of GPSC, Adv. Rodrigues has stated that the Supreme Court has

emphasiszed that only persons of high standing, intellectual ability and

reputation must be selected to the Public Service Commission while stressing

that the procedure and administrative guidelines should be in place so that the

possibility of arbitrary appointments is eliminated.

Adv.

Rodrigues has further stated that the Supreme Court has held that the intention

behind creation of an autonomous Public Service Commission as a constitutional

authority was to create a body of achievers and ex-administrators who could

select meritorious candidates for recruitment and promotion to various Civil

Service positions under the State Government with utmost probity and
transparency.

 Adv.

Rodrigues has also stated that the Supreme Court had directed all the State Governments

to ensure that their Public Service Commission is manned by competent, honest

and independent persons of ability and high reputation who command the

confidence of the people and who would not allow themselves to be deflected by

any extraneous considerations in discharging their duty in making selection to

various government posts strictly on merit.

While

stating that by selecting a very active senior leader of the BJP Mr. Sukhaji

Naik, the government has totally compromised the integrity and autonomy of the

GPSC, Adv. Rodrigues has drawn the attention that earlier this week the BJP had

publicly announced that Sukhaji Naik would assist State BJP Vice-President

Datta Kholkar in the election campaign for the 2021 Pernem Municipal Election.
