Gujarat Congress leaders highly condemn GPSSB paper leak case

Based on a tip-off, police detained a suspect and recovered a copy of the question paper of the exam early Sunday morning, after which the Gujarat Panchayat Service Selection Board decided to “postpone” the exam in the wider interest of the candidates, the board said in a statement.The police were investigating the matter, it said.“The junior clerk (administrative/accounting) exam was to be conducted in different districts between 11 am and 12 noon on January 29. As per the information received from the police early Sunday morning, they detained a suspect and upon his interrogation seized a copy of the question paper from his possession,” the board said in the statement. Responsibility of Investigation in the case has been given to Gujarat ATS.

GPCC Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee President Jagdish Thakor shared video of applicants expressing their displeasure over the issue and they felt helpless about their career in front of media.

The board expressed regret for the inconvenience caused to the candidates and informed them not to go to the examination centres.“The examination will be conducted afresh at the earliest, for which the board will issue a new advertisement,” it said.

Gujarat Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi claimed this was the 15th government competitive exam which was cancelled in the last 12 years because of question paper leak.

“The government claims to be taking strict action, but the main culprits have not even been arrested. The government is playing with the future of youth of the state,” he alleged.

Gujarat Congress MP Shaktisinh Gohil blamed that in the state 22 paper leak case happened and more than 9 lakh applications are affected due to it.

Doshi claimed the exam, for which the first advertisement was issued in 2016, was cancelled for the third time.
