The government ultimately today cancelled controversial clerk examination which had led to agitation over copying in the examination.
The cancellation of the examination was announced by Minister of State for Home Pradipsing Jadeja a short while ago. He said that examinees who are found in malpractices will be debarred from exams for three years.
The minister said that four FIRs have been filed and no one will be spared. He said that the Special investigation Team (SIT) which carried out investigation in this matter has not been able to find out the source of leak. He said that ATS and crime branch will thoroughly inquire into the matter.
To a question about role of Gujarat Gaun Seva Pasangadi mandal which conducts these examinations, Jadeja said that in last five years more than 25,000 exams for different posts have been conducted and there has been no problem. Though no one will be spared however influential he might be.
He attacked opposition Congress and claimed that the party was just making statements and had not provided even a single video clip. More than 6 lakh people appeared for the exam which was held on November 17.
Students welcomed the government’s move and demanded that re-examination should be held within one month.
