A day after the state government cancelled Bin Sachivalaya clerk and office assistant (Grade 3) exam over alleged question paper leak and irregularities, Congress state unit launched a fresh attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), claiming that at least 28 competitive exams were cancelled in the past five years in the state over alleged irregularities.
The party alleged that the state government is “playing with the lives of youngsters” by not ensuring that the such government competitive exams are conducted in a transparent manner.
In a letter written to Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Leader of Opposition in the Vidhan Sabha, Paresh Dhanani, demanded that the state government answer regarding action taken on exams cancelled in the past five years.
The letter also mentions the number of exams that have been cancelled either by the state government or by an order from the Gujarat High Court.
They include revenue talati exam, chief officer panchayat talati exam, deputy fitness staff nurse exam, multi-purpose health worker exam, motor vehicle supervisor exam, ST bus conductor exam, animal husbandry exam, Lok Rakshak Dal exam, Ahmedabad Municipality clerk exam, forest conservator exam, Bin Sachiavalaya exam and ITI instructor exam.
Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Amit Chavda attacked the BJP stating that the government is against marginalised students of the state.
