Panjim: Goa Governor P S Sreedharan Pillai on Monday said that the recruitment to the Goa Public Service Commission (GPSC) should be be free from political interference.
“The sole intention behind recruiting through PSC was to make it possible for the aspirants and ordinary citizens to get into the government service without any bias and injustice,” Pillai said.
