SC Exam Paper Leak: Anna Hazare Meets Protestors

SC Exam Paper Leak: Anna Hazare Meets Pr...

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Sunday met the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) aspirants who are protesting against the alleged paper leak of SSC in the national capital. Scores of students have been protesting outside the Staff Selection Commission office at CGO complex in Lodhi Road since February 27, 2018, seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged paper leak of the SSC exam held between February 17 to 21, 2018.

Meanwhile on Saturday, the Congress slammed the BJP and dubbed the SSC paper leak scandal as another Vyapam scam while demanding a thorough probe by the CBI into the matter. The party claimed that the charges of mass cheating, question paper leak and bogus candidates appearing in the examination showed the same modus operandi that was used in the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh, which was going on since 2006.

 

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said the government should immediately agree to all the demands of the agitating students and order a CBI probe into the paper leak. He also asked whether the Narendra Modi government at the Centre was selling jobs, instead of providing job opportunities to the youth. Questioning the silence of the BJP government over the incident, Surjewala asked whether the charges levelled by the students that a big recruitment racket was operating in the country were true. Voicing support to the demands of the protesting students, the Congress leader said the issue was very important as the SSC conducted the employee selection examinations for various ministries of the Government of India and over 10 million students appeared in the recruitment examinations for around 12,000-40,000 government posts. He alleged that the question papers were leaked in an orchestrated manner and that the price of the aspirants’ future was being fixed at Rs 40 lakh to Rs 50 lakh.
