The Congress on Thursday lashed out at the BJP government for the paper leak of Staff Selection Commission Combined Graduate-Level Examination (SSC CGL) and demanded a CBI probe.
The party’s chief spokesperson, Randeep Singh Surjewala, said, “SSC Scam is another Vyapam. Jobs being sold, future of millions of youth jeopardised, unabated protests continue for 3 days in Delhi, yet Modiji & SSC remain mum. If there is nothing wrong, why no CBI probe? Will PM answer? Will media listen?”
Aam Aadmi Party’s Kumar Vishwas too took to Twitter to express his outrage. He wrote, “Unfortunate to learn the way SSC’s Combined Graduate Level exams paper got leaked and now exams cancelled. More than 30 Lakhs dreams shattered. Who allows some of us to play with the future of millions of others?”
In another tweet, the poet-politician said, “It’s not just about the exams, but the dreams behind them. It’s an attack on society! It takes hundreds of days & nights to prepare for these exams, it takes prayers, sweat, blood! Must support the protesting students and demand toughest action agnst all involved. (sic)”
Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of SSC aspirants took to streets to protest against the ‘mass-level’ cheating. One aspirant said, ‘We are aggrieved that every SSC exam has one kind of corruption or the other. There’s no normalisation. Candidates are called for the final documents verification even before the results of mains are out. Mass level cheating are taking place. ”
Another protesting student said, “This is at least a Rs 1,000 crore scam. Nobody is willing to hear us. We will sit on indefinite hunger strike and uproot this corrupt system.”
