Congress further said that “HSSC and HPSC should be dissolved immediately as these two commissions have lost their credibility and the Chief Minister, who should have taken action in this matter, is silent. In such a situation, media reports and vigilance.” Taking suo moto notice of the BJP’s action, the Haryana governor should dissolve the two commissions and get the recruitment scams investigated by a sitting judge.
