- Paper leak case heats up in Gujarat
- Protesting AAP and Congress workers arrested
In Gujarat, the politics of the state has heated up regarding the paper leak in the clerk’s recruitment examination. Both Congress and Aam Aadmi Party are constantly trying to surround the government on this issue. The opposition party is adamant on the resignation of Asit Vora, chairman of the Gayatri Sewa Pasandgi Mandal, in this matter.
Aam Aadmi Party workers protested at the headquarters of the ruling party BJP, demanding the resignation of the chairman of the Gayatri Sewa Pasandgi Mandal. After this, the police arrested 70 people including Aam Aadmi Party President Gopal Italia.
The police have registered a case against the protesting leaders under several sections, including conspiracy. In such a situation, after the cancellation of the bail petition of the leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party, Gujarat in-charge of Congress Gulab Singh Yadav and Mahesh Savani announced a fast outside the collector’s office. Before he could reach there, the police also took him into custody.
More than 88 thousand students had appeared in the examination conducted by the Gujarat Secondary Service Commission with the hope of getting recruited in the government job, but on the very next day student leader Yuvraj Singh claimed that the question paper had already been leaked.
However, after 10 days, the state government also accepted that the question paper had already been leaked before the examination. After this the exam was cancelled. This is the fourth examination taken in the last five years through the Secondary Service Preference Board, whose paper has already been leaked.
The Congress also protested, demanding the resignation of Asit Vora, chairman of the Gayatri Sewa Pasandgi Mandal. After the protest, the police have also taken Congress workers into custody.
At present, the Gujarat government is surrounded by paper leak scandal. The Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party do not get the benefit of the students’ displeasure, so efforts are being made by the state government to do damage control. This is the reason that as soon as the protests started, the Gujarat government decided to cancel the recruitment exam.
On Wednesday, the Chief Minister of Gujarat has also held a meeting with Asit Vora regarding this issue. The opposition is adamant on the demand for his resignation.
