The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) on Wednesday announced a decisive battle against injustice allegedly done with thousands of aspirants of Assistant Professor. If necessary, the BJYM will fight a legal battle with the aspirants ‘deprived’ of participating in the interview of Assistant Professor Recruitment Examination-2019, conducted by Chhattisgarh Public Service Commission (CGPS). The BJYM will submit memorandum to the Chief Minister through all the district collectors of the state and took the fight to streets by burning the effigy of CGPSC in all the districts.
Former Collector of Raipur and BJP state secretary O P Choudhary, secretary Vijay Sharma and BJYM state president Amit Sahu addressed media on this burning issue of CGPSC at the party office in Raipur on Wednesday. These leaders strongly demanded a judicial inquiry into ‘irregularities’ allegedly committed by the CGPSC in the selection of candidates for interview.
Choudhary alleged that major irregularities are coming to fore in the Assistant Professor Recruitment Examination 2019.
Recently, a candidate alleged that another candidate with a roll number behind him was absent in the examination center, but he has been selected for interview which has raised several eyebrows, Choudhary said.
There is also conflict between Congress leaders over the issue indicating towards some big scandal in the CGPSC selection process, alleged Choudhary and Sharma. The Congress leaders have started blame game holding officers responsible for the same, claimed Choudhary.
For the first time in the history of Chhattisgarh, the organisation which is facing allegations of irregularities is giving itself a clean chit without delay, Choudhary said.
According to various sources, 105 questions from different subjects in the recruitment examination of Assistant Professor were deleted, said Choudhary. Many candidates also alleged that the references of a dozen authentic sources had also been ignored; otherwise the number of deleted questions could have been more than 200.
Such a procedure can create a situation of legal action and lead to unnecessary delay in the recruitment process which will not be in the interest of the youth of the state.
Similarly, 14 out of 150 questions were required to be deleted in Assistant Director-Agricultural Examination.
A press release was issued by the Chhattisgarh PSC itself on December 26 2020, which shows that the Pre-2019 examination was conducted on February 9 2020. The revised model answer was released on May 29 2020 after claims and objections.
The arguments of many young aspirants were ignored in the claim-objection, only then they were forced to move High Court.
There can be minimum human error in any question paper of any examination. But in the examination of Assistant Professor, it was asked where Tatapani is? The model answer carried Tatapani is in Surajpur in the north. Whereas a child of Chhattisgarh knows that Tatapani is in Balrampur district, said Choudhary. Big mistakes at this level can never be acceptable, he said.
CGPSC is also not releasing the examination calendar unlike other states like UP and MP. Even, UPSC already released the calendar of various examinations, so that the date of state and union examinations do not clash. But Chhattisgarh PSC has not released any calendar. Candidates who have passed the prelims are currently preparing for the mains. The date of Mains is not yet known. The date of Prelims -2020 has been announced. Whether candidates should prepare for prelims or mains?
On November 26, a calendar should be issued for the coming year. Before any recruitment examination, the level questions should be prepared and their options should be checked before the examination, so that the chances of mistakes and human error are minimised.
In order to ensure transparency, carbon copies of answer sheets should be started. PSC should not be indifferent in providing information.
Presently there are 16 examination centers in the state and the number should be increased to 28 i.e one in each district. Videography should be mandatory for all such examinations. Choudhary alleged that the CGPSC is not ready to listen to the candidates who are approaching the agency with valid facts and documents.
