APPSC is responsible for the chaos

The ugly scene witnessed on Saturday during Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Combined Competitive (APPSCC) mains examination does not augur well for the future of state. The candidates and police clashed outside the examination centre. Despite trying their best to keep themselves out of the chaos, the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) will have to take maximum blame for the whole fiasco. When a court judgment over the fate of writ petition filed by the aggrieved candidates was hanging, the commission should have taken precaution. The date for mains exam was fixed for November 10 but Itanagar permanent bench of the Gauhati High Court put a stay order on October 12 last and vacated stay order only a day before exam on November 9.
The candidates have gone through immense trauma during this whole period. Most of them were simply not in a proper state of mind to write the exam considering the emotional rollercoaster that they went through as the court kept pending its decision. Now that a large chunk of qualified candidates have boycotted the mains exam how can commission justify their act of going ahead with the examination? The APPSC has simply failed to properly conduct the mains exam. The future of thousands of aspirants is at stake. As the commission has failed, the state government should intervene and work out an acceptable solution. No injustice should be meted out to the aspirants who are the future of the state. Also its time public service commission gets its act together. They cannot keep getting away without being held responsible.
