PUDUCHERRY: All India N R Congress Legislator Ashok Anand on Monday urged the administration to initiate criminal proceedings against JIPMER officials, who had allegedly bypassed the Puducherry Employment Exchange and filled up 1,500 posts with candidates from other States.

Making a special mention in the House during Zero Hour, Anand said JIPMER, under the pretext of an autonomous institution, had filled up the posts from 2010 to 2014 by not adhering to the relevant recruitment laws and recruited candidates from other States. So, he requested the government to quash the recruitments and ensure that it fills up at least 50 per cent of the posts with MBBS and Post Graduate candidates from Puducherry.

Also, he alleged that Puducherry candidates were not given opportunity even for multi-task force appointments as the recruitment tests were conducted in Hindi and English.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA K Lakshminarayanan raised objection to the ban order issued by the government on the construction of JIPMER Urban Health centre (UHC) .

Raising the issue during Question Hour in the  Assembly, the MLA said the JIPMER‘s Urban Health Centre was functioning at Ginjee Salai for the past 40 years. As the existing building of the centre was in a poor state, JIPMER authorities had proposed to construct a new one on the same site in. He said that if the work was stopped, it would be a loss for the people.
