R.S. Sasikumar Conven-or, Higher Education Protection Council, has submitted a complaint to Governor P Sathasivam against the apathy of the PSC in the conduct of the examinations.
The PSC is supposed to conduct the exams with the utmost care, authenticity and wide acceptability among the public and select the meritorious and deserving candidates for various positions. Hence, the chaotic situation resulting from the neglect and lack of accountability is leading to the gross loss of faith in the PSC examinations, his complaint said.
The conduct of examination on Sundays and inclusion of questions deeply hurting the faith and customs of certain communities add to the anti-constitutional acts of the PSC.
