Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, here on Monday, asked the UP party unit to raise the teachers’ recruitment scam aggressively.
At a video conference with the state party advisory and planning committee, she raised the teacher recruitment scam and asked the party workers to show solidarity with the agitating youth.
It also planned a state-wide stir for the release of UP Congress chief Ajay Kumar Lallu.
Earlier in the day, Priyanka Gandhi compared the UP teacher recruitment scam with the MP’s ‘Vyapam scam’ and alleged that the diaries recovered from racketeers showed involvement of many high-profile people.
“Injustice should not be done to the hard working youths. If the government can’t give them justice, then the answer will be given by a movement,” she tweeted.
The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday stayed appointment of 69,000 assistant basic teachers stating that there had been an ‘error’ in the evaluation of question papers. The recruitment examination was held on January 6, 2019 and results were declared on May 12 this year.
