The News Minute | March 23, 2015 | 12:04 p.m. IST While the children of most politicians tend to follow in their parents’ footsteps, the son of a Rajasthan MLA has apparently applied for the job of a peon, after his father said he was “eligible” only for that job. According to a report by NDTV, BJP legislator Heera Lal Verma’s son, Hansraj, appeared for the interview in Ajmer at the Krishi Upaj Mandi (Rajasthan State Agriculture Marketing Board) on Friday. The politician, who is a two-time MLA from Tonk and a former government officer, reportedly told the channel that his son worked at a private clinic and earned Rs 5000 per month. “He was weak in studies and could not clear secondary exam (class X)”, he said. The minister reportedly also said that there would be absolute transparency in the selection process and that he believed that his son would get a job based on his performance and eligibility only. “So this is the only option available to him... I will not encourage him to involve in any work or business which is higher than his capabilities or eligibility”, he added.
