The BJP today demanded an impartial probe into all appointments made by the Jammu and Kashmir State Public Service Commission (PSC) during last two to three years, a party spokesperson said.

Claiming that candidates from Jammu region were neglected and only 10 to 20 per cent made it to the selection lists, BJP state spokesman Prof Virender Gupta said, "BJP demands that the Jammu & Kashmir government should hold an impartial enquiry into the selections made in various posts by the Public Service Commission in the last two to three years to address the grievances and suspicions of candidates belonging to Jammu region about the process."

Prof Gupta claimed nobody from Jammu region had held the position of the Chairman of PSC in the last 40 years.

He also said the recent selections made in the state cadre posts of Junior Assistants reflect blatant discrimination against the Jammu region.

Gupta also slammed the appointments made by the State Service Selection Board in which “out of 28 open category positions, only one was granted to a candidate from Jammu and 22 from Budgam district of Kashmir valley; out of nine posts under Reserved Backward Area (RBA) category, just one candidate was from Jammu.”

He questioned the so-called policy of equitable treatment of all regions and demanded an impartial enquiry.
