Anirudh Chautala, grandson of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, on Wednesday sat on a fast at Bapu Park outside chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's residence here, but was forcibly removed by the police department in wake of imposition of Section 144 of CrPC.
Anirudh, son of late Jagdish Chander, said both Congress and INLD regimes in the state during their respective tenure preferred favouritism and nepotism while making recruitments in government jobs in the state.
He was accompanied by volunteers of Yuva Bolega Forum. He demanded cancellation of recruitment of the Haryana Civil Services, results of which were announced by the state government recently.
Talking to mediapersons, he said it is a matter of concern that the state government uses interview system as a tool to sideline meritorious candidates in jobs to select their preferred candidates.
Notably, recently Indian National Lok Dal also protested outside the chief minister's residence and demanded cancellation of HCS recruitments while alleging pick-and-choose policy on part of government.
