MPSC exam postponed: Students question Uddhav Thackeray government’s decision
Competitive exam students have questioned the decision taken by CM Uddhav Thackeray to postpone the MPSC exams
Pune: Competitive exam students have questioned the decision taken by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to postpone the Maharashtra Public Service Commission examinations scheduled in September and October this year. “We have already spent many years preparing for these exams. How many more years you are going to spend in the name of Covid-19 outbreak. Does MPSC decide on exams or political leaders? Political leaders, according to their own convenience, are the ones who have started to decide our future and not the MPSC,” the students have stated.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced on Twitter that the upcoming Maharashtra Public Service Commission exams have been postponed. The exams were scheduled to take place in September and October, but the Covid-19 outbreak is not yet under control in the state and hence the exams have been postponed, the government has clarified.
Every organisation, political leader, self-proclaimed representative is playing a role at their convenience. A few days ago, some organisations, political leaders had demanded that the exams be held and the same people are demanding that the exams be postponed today. At the same time, many had demanded that the commission should allow students to change the centre allotted for the examination.
Amol Patil, a student said, “While 40,000 seats are available for the exam in Pune, more than 32,000 of them have opted for Pune. It is not clear why the government has decided to postpone the exams when there is such a huge response from students. We are playing with the future of students by changing the decision regarding exams from time to time.”
Yogesh Babar, another student said, “While students are prepared to appear for these exams, some political leaders and self-proclaimed representatives are unnecessarily creating hurdles in the process. These people are misleading the Maharashtra Public Service Commission and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.”
