The Itanagar permanent bench of the Gauhati High Court in Naharlagun heard all the points of arguments from the respective learned counsels. However, it is yet to pronounce its judgment. Every affected aspirant is in a state of utter frustration.
Suppose the court gives a verdict against the commission and asks it to re-conduct the exam from the preliminary stage, then it’s not going to settle the case easily. In this circumstance, the commission’s credibility will be totally smashed, and the aggrieved mains appeared candidates will certainly not opt to sit for reexamination for the prelims for a third time and the main exam for a second time.
In the matter of out-of-syllabus questions in the commerce subject in the preliminary exam, the commission had already clarified their stand, and the court will judge the merits. But my sincere sympathy goes to those candidates who opted not to sit in the mains exam and still pretend to have been obstructed by the boycotters and try to manipulate the opinion of the common people. However, they will never succeed in their intention as the public are not foolish.
These never-ending dramas are mainly created by the protesters who were seeking more time for preparation. Because of their protest movements, the new aspirants who are preparing for the next exam with utmost sincerity and dedication, the protesters themselves, and the appeared candidates who followed the commission’s order, are suffering. The mains appeared group cannot be victimized by any means for no fault of us. Or we can’t also sacrifice our three-year-long preparation. The appeared aspirants were following all the laid norms of the commission.
If the entire examination is to be re-started from the preliminary stage, the mains appeared candidates will certainly go for an appeal in the court, instead of sitting the prelims for the third time and the mains for the second time.
