JE-Civil paper leak: Aspirants prostrate before Odisha CM’s grievance cell seeking justice

Bhubaneswar: Cancellation of the main written examination of Junior Engineer (Civil), conducted by the Odisha Staff Selection Commission (OSSC), over alleged leak of question papers has created widespread resentment among the aspirants.

Hundreds of aspirants today staged a dharna in front of the OSSC office in the capital city here and sought stringent action against the officials involved in the question paper leak.

The agitators also tried to meet OSSC Chairman Abhay, a former Director General of Police (DGP) in Odisha, to put forth their grievances.

The agitators later reached the grievance cell of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to urge the state government to take immediate measures to check similar incidents in future.

The agitators were seen prostrating in front of the Chief Minister’s grievance cell seeking utmost transparency in all recruitment examinations in Odisha.

“The OSSC has cancelled the main written examination of JE (Civil) over question paper leak. It is now crystal clear that some officials of the OSSC and state government are behind the incident. The Chief Minister should order an impartial probe into the incident. Steps should be taken to identify the guilty and initiate stringent action against them,” said an aspirant.

The OSSC yesterday cancelled the main written examination of JE (Civil) conducted on July 16 as per a report submitted by Balasore district Superintendent of Police (SP) Sagarika Nath in connection with the question paper leak.

Nath claimed that the Balasore police have busted an interstate job fraud racket and arrested nine persons in this regard.

She also made it clear that the members of the racket had provided the genuine question papers of the JE (Civil) main examination to some job aspirants by collecting huge sums from them.
