Gujarat police constable Exam: The Opposition in Gujarat, Congress on Sunday hits out at the BJP government over the cancellation Gujarat police constable Exam, and demanded Chief Minister Vijay Rupani’s resignation, saying “ The BJP government is playing with the future of Gujarat’s youth it has no right to stay in power if it cannot even conduct an examination without engaging in corruption”.
As many as 8.75 lakh candidates were scheduled to appear for the Gujarat police constable exam which was to start at 3pm Sunday in 2,440 centres across Gujarat, the official said.
“Candidates prepare for months to appear for the exams and the examination was called off hours before the test was scheduled to start after it came to light that the question paper was leaked, Cancelling the examination just before it was scheduled causes immense mental and physical stress to students.
CM Vijay Rupani must take full responsibility of what had happened and resign from the position what he is carrying” state Congress chief Amit Chavda said.
Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil demanded a probe by a Special Investigation Team led by a sitting High Court judge. “This question paper was available in the open market since Saturday. The BJP government is playing with the future of youths. In all, youths must have lost crores of rupees today. This loss must be compensated,” said Gohil.
Independent MLA Jignesh Mevani slammed the CM for “remaining silent”. “Think about the enormity of unemployment in Gujarat that today over 9 lakh youth applied for recruitment exams to 9,000 posts. Even the paper was leaked. Yet the CM is silent. No shame,” he said.
The BJP, however, accused the Congress of “politicising the sensitive matter”. “Paper leak is unfortunate and painful. The government is going to take strict against those responsible,” said BJP.
