Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has come down heavily on the state government and APPSC chairman Y Vekatarami Reddy for holding the preliminary examination for recruitment of candidates for Group-I services despite severe opposition from the students and people’s representatives from Telangana. He demanded that the exam be cancelled.
Rao told reporters here today that the conduct of the exam was a classic example of the kind of injustice that is always meted out to the people of Telangana in a unified state. "This is a black day in the history of Telangana," he said.
"The chief minister, the chief secretary, the director general of police and the chairman of the APPSC, who are from Andhra had decided to conduct the exam only to benefit the students of their region," he said and announced that the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) will meet tomorrow to decide the future course of action if the government does not cancel the exam.
The TRS is also considering legal action, since the question paper had come out within minutes of the commencement of the exam. "I am sure this is a fit ground for the High Court to annul the exam," the TRS chief said.
