Naidu asks MPs to tackle dispute over language after the examination concludes on August 24

New Delhi : The NDA government has promised that the issues related to the Civil Services Aptitude Test of the Union Public Service Commission for the civil service aspirants would be taken-up in future after the scheduled August 24th examination is over.

As the members of parliament continued to express their concern over the injustice that is being done to the regional languages, the union parliamentary affairs minister M Venkaiah Naidu appealed them to allow the examination to be over smoothly.

“My appeal is that the exam is on August 24th. The students are preparing, let us not deviate them, and let the exam be over,” he said while assuring that all the issues would be addressed.

Emphasising that changes cannot be made overnight, Naidu said that he had taken the initiative for the inclusion of different languages. ” But this is an issue that needs to be debated by everybody, including the UPSC,” he added.

Earlier, the government had announced that the marks related to the English component of the examination would not be counted for the purposes of merit or gradation.

Though this announcement satisfied the main demand of the RSS voice on educational matters Dina Nath Batra it created a lot of apprehension in the minds of others.

The members in both houses of the parliament expressed their discontent with the emerging situation. The agitating civil service aspirants were also not satisfied with it.
