Scores of aspirants assembled in the Press Enclave and were raising slogans against the concerned officials for delaying the written examination even as they said that they are being subjected to injustice.
“The written examination for the Border Battalion has not been held while as they have come up with the re-advertisement notification which is not only a violation, but it clearly against the set norms,” Ishrat, of the aspirants said.
The protestors said that the administration is taking them lightly since they presume that the aspirants belong to border areas and know nothing, ” but we know everything and it is our right to demand what we are seeking; do they think that we do not know anything,” the aspirants said.
The aspirants said that they have time and again called upon the officials as well as the politicians. “But they keep telling that they will address the issue, but nothing has been done,” they said.
The aggrieved aspirants said that if the concerned authorities are going to go ahead with the re-advertisement, “then they should go ahead with the examination which is witnessing delay and should carry out the rest of the process as per the re-advertisement separately,” the aspirants demanded.
They also warned that if their demands are not met, they will be compelled to move the court.
“If nothing will happen, we will move to the court against the re-advertisement. The Govt has failed in delivering on the ground no matter they are stating that there are vacancies available,” they said.
They said that the Government is not ready to listen to their issues even as they are protesting for the last more than 2 months.
“The protests are going on for the last 2 months, particularly in Jammu, but the Government is not ready to address our issues,” they said.
The aspirants demanded a conduct of examination delayed for long and carrying out the process as per the new advertisement notification separately.
“They have to listen to us, they cannot mould the rules as per their will,” the aspirants said.
