PSC exam aspirants protest against halting exam
KATHMANDU: Various stakeholders including aspirants of the Public Service Commission examination have been protesting against the State Affairs Committee (SAC) of the parliament’s directing the government and the Public Service Commission (PSC) to scrap the recently-announced vacancies for civil servants at various local units.
The examination aspirants have demanded that the exams be conducted as per the PSC schedule.
The struggle committee coordinator Mangal Thapa in a press meet here today said that the thousands of students would be victimized psychologically if the examination were not held as per the schedule. He also argued that they would further launch various programmes to exert pressure to hold the examination in time.
On June 10, the Committee had directed the government to stop the announcement for a total of various 9,161 government positions at local level. Commenting on the matter, Sharma said the PSC is a ‘fair’ body, and it follows the law and constitution and does not want to be caught up in any sort of disputes.
Approximately 95,000 people have applied for the vacancies so far, according to Sharma. Against the vacancy announcement, the Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities on Wednesday launched a protest at Maitighar Mandala. They demanded scrapping of the announcement and a fresh vacancy announcement as it they said did not allocate reservation quotas for marginalised and indigenous communities.
