Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday assured a delegation of civil service aspirants that steps will be taken to redress their grievances as the students complained that the sudden change in the pattern of the examination was unfair to those coming from a rural background.
Gandhi told the students that he was “in agreement” with them and would make every effort to address their problems.
“Gandhi said he is of the belief that before making any big change in the examination pattern, it is necessary to talk to all sections and know their viewpoint,” a Congress release said. The delegation which called on Gandhi was led by NSUI President Rohit Chauhdary.
Civil service aspirants have been protesting in the national capital and elsewhere over the recent move by the government to introduce new examination rules.
They had held a massive protest march outside Parliament in December last year demanding a revision of the new rules introduced by the Union Public Services Commission.
