HYDERABAD: Alleging that the Telangana government did not follow the Supreme Court guidelines in conducting the Group I examination, members of the Telangana Unemployed Students Joint Action Committee and BC Udyama Vedika, staged a protest in the premises of the Osmania University Arts college on Tuesday.
The Joint Action Committee demanded a CBI inquiry into the Group I Mains examination results, published by the Telangana Public service commission owing to lack of transparency in the examination process.
Criticizing the TSPC for not following the Supreme Court’s guidelines in conducting the examination afresh, the JAC alleged that the public service commission worked against the interests of the genuine aspirants. The students’ unions burnt an effigy of the State Chief Minister Mr. K Chandra Sekhar Rao and went on a rally in premises of the Osmania University.
The major complaint was that the TSPSC has actually reduced the number of posts under Group I services and the process of certificate verification was not transparent. They alleged that as many as 12 members were brought into the main stream of qualified candidates through ‘backdoor’ for certificate verification.
The students also protested against the problems faced by genuine students in the process of evicting non-boarders in the university hostels. Moreover, the JAC pointed out that the government is yet to appoint governing councils for state universities, which only shows the negligence of the government towards Education.
The latest development in the Osmania university premises comes as a major jolt to the TS government, which has already been reeling under the pressure of a recent stay on Group II results by the High court and the ongoing drug menace in the state capital.
