THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The government’s move to deny financial aid to the Public Service Commission (PSC) would bring its functions to a standstill and put thousands of job-seekers in a bind, said Opposition Leader V S Achuthanandan.  He pointed out that according to the PSC, the Chief Minister has assured an urgent financial support to the tune of `48 crore to the corporation.

 “However, contrary to this assurance, funds have not being released. The Finance Department, which takes keen interest in  PSC’s audit, also has the responsibility to resolve the financial crisis faced by the corporation,” Achuthanandan said in a statement.The severe financial crunch could affect the scheduled examinations and interviews, he said. Instead of providing financial aid, the government is planning to promote delinquent officials with the Finance Department. Since the PSC has taken a stand against this move, the government is now attempting to destroy the corporation. The Opposition Leader accused the government of playing with the lives of lakhs of candidates to avenge the PSC.

In his statement, VS demanded that the Chief Minister should urgently intervene to resolve the issue and provide financial support to the PSC.
