KAS aspirants protest in Srinagar against JKPSC
Srinagar, January 24: The KAS aspirants who recently appeared in the examination on Thursday staged a protest against the Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC) over what they termed as ‘financial irregularities and scam’ in the commission.
Scores of KAS aspirants assembled here at Srinagar’s press enclave and chanted slogans in favour of justice. The aspirants alleged that there were financial irregularities in the commission as despite having only Rs six Lakhs available for the year, the commission had hired a top rated Advocate to plead their case in Supreme Court against the ‘scam’ in selecting the aspirants here.
The aspirants said that the commission had hired one Shyam Divan, a top advocate in SC to plead their case in SC over the case filed regarding fraud in selecting the aspirants in the recently held KAS examinations.
Stating that all such measures by JKPSC were aimed at exhausting the ‘poor KAS aggrieved aspirants’ so that, they are in no position to continue their legal struggle against the financial irregularities of JKPSC.
The aspirants also said that they wanted to ask the commission where from they were getting such huge money to provide to the Advocate for pleading their case. “Isn’t this amount coming from the aspirants who have been selected undeservingly?” one of the aspirants said adding that there should be probe into the selection of aspirants in the recently held KAS examination.
The protesting aspirants appealed the Governor as well as the Chief Justice to carry out an investigation in the matter and also requested the governor administration to provide them legal help to carry on their legal battle.
