Cancellation of Lok Rakshak exam in Gujarat: BJP "playing" with future of 9 lakh students

Congress spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil has alleged that in the name of recruitment in government jobs, the BJP government in Gujarat is "playing with the future of lakhs of youth." Pointing out that the Lok Rakshaks in the police are proposed would be given a fixed pay, and it is not a permanent post, Gohil said, as many as nine lakh young people of Gujarat had made preparations for many days for the examination for the post of Lok Rakshak.
However, on Sunday, suddenly, after students from far away places such as Banaskantha district reached Bhavnagar to give Lok Rakshak examination, the government announced that it had been canceled because the paper had been leaked and was being sold for a hefty sum.
The BJP's corrupt government in Gujarat is compromising the lives of the youth, Gohil said,adding, the students had come to appear in examination after travelling 300 kilometers. Most of them belonging to ordinary families had to spend Rs 2000 each to reach Bhavnagar to give examination. But now the Chief Minister says that each student would be provided with only travel expense. This is highly irresponsible. It should compensate fully for the mental and physical harassment and catch the culprits.
