Union demands re-conducting APPSCCE

Staff Reporter
ITANAGAR, Nov 18: Expressing solidarity with the agitating Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Combined Competitive (Mains) Examination (APSCCE) aspirants who are demanding re-conducting of the APPSCCE, the Rajiv Gandhi University Students’ Union (RGUSU) on Sunday demanded that the entire examination process be scrapped and the CSAT pattern introduced by the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC).
Addressing media persons at the press club here, RGUSU president Goda Karu denounced the commission over the repeated anomalies in the state’s highest competitive examination.
“Since there are repeated anomalies in the optional papers in the prelims examination, to do away with the problem, our memorandum is for introduction of the CSAT pattern” Karu said.
The union squarely blamed the APPSC for the entire mess, and said the commission should take full responsibility for those candidates who are on the verge of being over the age limit to sit for the APPSCCE.
The union has submitted a two-point memorandum in support of the agitating candidates to the governor, demanding squashing of the entire examination process and re-conducting the APPSCCE.
It also urged Raj Bhavan to introduce the CSAT pattern to check anomalies.
The high court on Wednesday directed Rajiv Gandhi University to form an expert committee to inquire into the anomalies in the APPSCCE.
