SSC Deputy Chairman Amitesh Biswas on Monday had accused the commission of offering jobs to candidates who had scored less in the eligibility test while denying the same to deserving candidates.

Rubbishing Biswas's claims, panel chairman Subiresh Bhattacharya said, "The commission works in a transparent way and if someone is alleging that there are irregularities, then it is their responsibility to substantiate it with proof. But, if someone is trying to malign the commission, we will take appropriate action," he told reporters here.

Bhattacharya clarified that only deserving candidates have got jobs and there is "no diversion" in the functioning of the commission. Training his guns on Biswas who was relieved of his duties following the allegations, Bhattacharya said the official never lodged a formal complaint regarding this matter."

Why is he talking after two years? The person who used to dub students as Maoists is suddenly taking their side."I would request him to send a written letter to the commission. However, if his allegations are found to be baseless, then appropriate action will be taken within the purview of law," the panel head said.

Despite being relieved of his responsibilities, Biswas Tuesday forced his way into the office, contending his removal was illegal."Chairman (Bhattacharya) is not empowered to order my removal. Moreover, I am the custodian of very important documents that are here in the office. It is my responsibility to protect those," said Biswas.
