Karnal: Hundreds of candidates, who have qualified the common eligibility test (CET) of the Haryana Staff Selection Commission, along with the activists of youth congress held a protest in Karnal, demanding a chance to appear in the main exam.
Congress MP Deepender Hooda and Haryana Youth Congress president Divyanshu Budhiraja led the protest.
Scores of CET qualified candidates from across the state reached in Karnal. The owners of some private coaching centers accompany them.
The protesting youths tried to gherao the chief minister’s residence in Karnal, but police stopped them a few meters away where they staged a sit-in and raised the slogan against the state government. Later, they submitted a memorandum to the district administration.
While supporting the demands of the youths, Deepender Hooda said the government should give opportunity to all the youths who qualify CET in the recruitments and withdraw the changes made in the CET qualifying rules.
He said that Congress will raise the voice of the youth from streets to Vidhan Sabha and the Parliament.
“If the present government does not accept the demands of the youth, then we will fulfill the demand of giving a chance to every CET qualified youth, when the Congress government is formed in the state,” he said.
Deepender alleged that on the one hand, Haryana has the highest unemployment in the country. On the other, two lakh government posts are lying vacant, recruitments are getting stuck or are falling prey to scams.
He said that the arbitrary condition of 4 times in CET brought by the BJP-JJP government has no meaning.
Budhiraja Divyanshu said out of 7.53 lakh candidates, around 3.57 lakh youth passed the CET examination. But the staff selection commission has decided to invite only four times the number of youths (vacancy wise) who passed the CET for the main examination, which is unfair with the youths who qualified the test.
