Members of Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP) led a protest outside the Gandhi Bhawan, Panjab University (PU) demanding a fair chance in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination to candidates who have completed their education in Hindi medium.
While opposing the change of pattern in the UPSC paper, the members highlighted that the inclusion of a compulsory English paper, is unfair to the Hindi medium students. As per the changes, a 100 marks paper of English comprehension and precis will replace English and Indian language papers which were qualifying in nature and their marks were not included while forming merit list.
“A large number of the students aspiring to join Civil Services hail from Hindi belts of the country, who study in schools where the medium of instruction is Hindi.”
“The recent changes will prevent many such students to join the Civil services,” said Harmanjot Singh, member of ABVP, who added that the student organisation had protested against the issue last year also.
