UPSC row : Centre must announce emergency relief measures to restore normalcy

The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP’s central government must not sit on its ego and admit that its proposal to the students protesting against the UPSC discrimination in the Civil Services preliminary examination does not solve any purpose.

With the time running out and students career at stake, the Aam Aadmi Party appeals to the central government to announce some emergency measures for immediate relief to the students, keeping the current situation in mind.

The central government must ask the Union Public Service Commission to postpone the Civil Services preliminary examination scheduled to begin from August 24 by atleast a fortnight, to begin with.

Next, the UPSC be told to make a public declaration that the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) will be treated as merely a qualifying exam and its marks will not be added in the final merit for those who attain the minimum qualifying marks.

After the dejection and rejection of the government’s formula by the protesting students, the AAP demands the central government must publicly acknowledge that the current Civil Services examination pattern is neither language neutral nor stream neutral. The Centre must realize that aspirants being forced to take to streets at a time when they should have been busy preparing for the exams does not reflect a happy situation for the country.

The BJP ministers who were making tall claims before their government actually came out with an unacceptable formula, must now break their silence and assure the students that their grievances will be addressed in a phased manner.

Though the government has failed to address the students concerns, it must atleast announce emergency relief measures to restore normalcy.
