The opposition parties on Friday staged a walkout in the Rajya Sabha over the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) row. According to the opposition parties, the walkout was staged as the government did not give any timeframe to resolve the issue.
Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the government was studying the report submitted by a committee on the issue. He further said that the government wanted early resolution over the issue.
This comes after The Indian Express reported that the UPSC is understood to have opposed any move to either postpone or cancel the 2014 Civil Services Preliminary Exam scheduled to be held all over the country on August 24.
The Department of Personnel and Training sent a communication to the UPSC earlier this week, which contained a list of “suggestions” received by the government from agitators opposed to the current format of the CSAT paper which is part of the Preliminary Exam.
According to DoPT sources, the UPSC has since sent detailed responses to each of the “suggestions”, along with the reasons why a majority of them would be difficult to implement at this late stage of the 2014 examination cycle. (With PTI inputs)
