Court Directs Minister’s Daughter Over WB Recruitment Scam

The Calcutta High Court has asked Ankita Adhikari, daughter or Minister of State for Education, Parsh Adhikari to return the salary she has earned so far through her work as a “teacher” by 7 June. She was asked to stop working. The court also said that she would not be able to call herself a teacher anywhere.

The decision comes during a hearing in one of the many cases of wrongdoing in the appointment of teachers in West Bengal. Babita Sarkar highlighted the special case – a job seeker who successfully passed the recruitment exam and was 20th on the waiting list, but her rank was given to Ankita Adhikari due to her father’s influence.

The minister and his daughter were questioned by the CBI for two consecutive days.

Babita Sarkar spoke exclusively with News18, a mother of two who has been looking for a job for years, and said she only wants her job by following the right path. She says, you will fight to the end. “For the past five years, I’ve been running from one column to the next to get a job. Seeing someone could easily land that job with leverage is[disheartening],” she said in an exclusive interview with News18.com.
