UP PET exam: Chaos as lakhs of candidates swarm railway stations

They criss-crossed the length and breadth of the State, like when Muhammad Tughlaq moved the Capital from Delhi to Daulatabad and back during the 14th century. The whole of UP was thrown into utter chaos.

LUCKNOW, Oct 17: The Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UPSSSC) conducted the Uttar Pradesh Preliminary Eligibility Test (UP PET) for various posts in the State Government on October 15 and 16 at various centres throughout the State.

Examinees were allotted non-resident district centres as a step to prevent malpractices. That is, under the new system, an examinee is allotted a centre in a district other than the one he/she belongs to. So a staggering 37,58,209 candidates were travelling a long haul across 75 districts in the State two nights standing and having nowhere to stay. 25.11 lakh candidates appeared while 12.46 lakh (around 33%) could not make it. There were 1,899 centres.

Railway stations and bus stops witnessed huge, frightful crowds as lakhs of candidates were moving to other districts long way off necessitating a night's journey and stay, and as they returned to their home district.

There were stampede like situation at railway stations and even several exam centres. Reacting to the development, the Opposition sought to expose the Government's job scheme as a vote bank scheme, and inflicting untold sufferings on them.

Pitiful videos showing huge rush of students at the Kanpur Central, Ghazipur and Sitapur Junction trying to board the train to go home had gone viral on social media.

A staggering 37,58,209 candidates had registered for the exam which was held in two shifts: 10 am to 12 pm and 3 pm to 5 pm, both days.

PET is being conducted for the recruitment of Group B and Group C posts of the Government of Uttar Pradesh for 2022-23.

Help desks were set up at various railway stations and bus depots across the State to assist candidates find their respective centres. Apart from help desks, police personnel and administrative authorities were also stationed at the help desks.

TAILPIECE: Not just UP, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Punjab, Telangana and even Delhi have promulgated their intention to recruit lakhs of people or regularise (permanent) contract employees (entailing a dozen allowances and a fat pension till death of self and spouse), adding to the legions of clerks without work (unproductive) in the name of creating jobs! Who will foot the bill for eternity? Obviously, the rest of India, at a time when already 80 crore Indians are eating Modi's rice!
