A month ago, Bhagat had declared that the selection lists will be made public in a day or two. He retracted a few days later and sought three more days for declaration of the selection list. But more than a month has passed since and the selection lists are yet to come out.
The SSB officials aren’t ready to respond to any query from the candidates or even the media. Chairman Bhagat, doesn’t take any phone and every time, the voice on the other side says that he is in the Civil Secretariat and has kept his cell phone in the office.
The candidates have another fear. With a new political government in place, they fear that the political influences will now play its part and that will mar the merit. “During Governor’s rule, we hoped that a fair selection list will be prepared,” says Mudasir Amin, another candidate. “But now a political government has sworn in, there is every possibility that the lists will be played with and I apprehend that is the reason for this delay.”
