Padma demanded the resignation of not only the Chief Minister and the IT Minister, but also TSPSC Chairman Janardhan Reddy, Secretary Anitha Ramachandran, and all the board members who were responsible for conducting the examinations.
What did the minister say?
Addressing a rally in Warangal, Padma questioned the government’s decision to suspend the TSPSC and said that the “family rule of Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao should be suspended for troubling the people of Telangana by indulging in various irregularities and corruption.”
The BJP leader accused the TRS government of playing a “new drama” to divert attention from its failures and demanded that an inquiry be conducted by a sitting judge into the paper leak case.
Mild tension prevailed during the protests as police arrested Padma and several BJP activists who tried to lay siege to the collectorate in Hanamkonda.The protest created a huge commotion as the tension between the party workers and police increased .However, the tensed situation was brought under control by the police.
Earlier, Padma and other BJP leaders staged a dharna at the Telangana Martyrs statue near Adalat Circle to protest the arrests of BJP state president Bandi Sanjay Kumar and Huzurabad MLA Etala Rajendar.
The protesters demanded monetary compensation for each student who appeared for the TSPSC exams and criticized the government for its “irresponsible attitude” towards unemployed youths who had spent lakhs of rupees on coaching and preparation for the exams, thus playing with their future.
Former MLAs, corporators, and other BJP leaders were also present at the protests.
The rising Demand
The demand for the resignation of high-ranking officials in Telangana, including the Chief Minister and the IT Minister, continues to grow. The opposition parties have accused the TRS government of failing to address the issue of paper leaks and jeopardizing the futures of the students.
In response, the TRS has defended its decision to suspend the TSPSC and has promised a fair and transparent investigation into the matter.
Meanwhile, the students who appeared for the TSPSC exams have expressed their frustration and disappointment over the paper leaks. Many of them have demanded that the government take immediate action to ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the future.
The paper leaks in the TSPSC exams have raised serious questions about the government’s ability to conduct fair and transparent exams. The demands for the resignation of high-ranking officials are likely to intensify in the coming days, putting further pressure on the TRS government.
Mishandlings of this kind, create unnecessary issues that hamper the overall growth of the youth. Such incidents are unacceptable and should be strictly dealt with in the future. Also, the government should implement crucial rules to handle such situations, eradicating the possibility of their occurrence.
