Dehradun: Uttarakhand high court on Tuesday ordered the state government to file an affidavit in the case of irregularities in Group D appointments in cooperative banks across the state.Petitioner Priyanshu Tyagi said in his petition that there have been large-scale irregularities in the recruitment of Group-D posts in district cooperative banks across the state.The petitioner told the court that in 2020, a notification was issued for appointment to 423 Group D posts. The petitioner alleged that a large number of relatives of ministers and senior government officials were appointed to the said posts, adding, a good number of other candidates were appointed by taking bribes. Notably, the recruitment process in three districts was suspended after the registrar of cooperative societies, Dehradun, appointed a committee for investigation in 2022 in Dehradun, Nainital, and Pithoragarh branches. The government counsel said that the order of suspension against recruitment to Group-D posts was passed in respect of banks that were carrying out the recruitment process and against which complaints have been received.Suresh Rathod, the then MLA of Jwalapur (Haridwar), was the first to raise this matter with the chief minister. The petitioner demanded the court to order a CBI investigation into the matter and strict action against those responsible. The next hearing in the case will be held on Friday.
