what was the whole matter
Listening to the audio clearly shows that a person named Pankaj Kumar talks to a candidate named Guddu on phone and after introducing him, he hands over the phone to the BEO of Murliganj. The BEO assures Guddu in his conversation that if he arranges Rs 8 lakh, the job is sure. BEO sahib even says that the secretary of BDO sahib cum planning unit of Murliganj is ready to get 10 lakhs from his candidate but this seat will be given to Guddu only.
But he will have to suffer to get the position. In the viral audio, the BEO sahib even says that he even got one of his relatives, who had gone to jail, to get a job, even though he does not even come and go. On the basis of money, they are claiming to make all their relatives as teachers. The BEO told Guddu that there are 6-7 stakeholders in the money that will be taken. The stakeholders also include the DEO and DDC. So they won't have much left.
