Congress forms committee for statewide protest on TSPSC question paper leaks

Hyderabad: The Congress, in a move to intensify its agitation over the TSPSC question paper leaks, on Thursday set up a six-member committee to coordinate statewide agitations on the issue.

TPCC chief A. Revanth Reddy launched the committee, which will be led by PCC senior vice-president Mallu Ravi.

PCC working president B. Mahesh Kumar Goud said: “The newly-formed committee will take forward the statewide agitation programmes pertaining to the leakage of question papers of TSPSC, in consultation with political parties and all sections of the society, including parents, students, community, unemployed youth and the intelligentsia.”

Pradesh Youth Congress president K. Shivasena Reddy and NSUI state president B. Venkat were named convenors of the committee, with PCC general secretaries K. Manavatha Roy and R. Bala Lakshmi, and chairman of PCC insurance and claims department Pavan Malladi as members.

The move comes against a backdrop of the police thwarting Revanth Reddy’s attempt to participate in a two-day deeksha at Osmania University on March 24.

Party sources said that an invite to Revanth indicated shifting loyalties of students and unemployed JAC members towards the Congress.

“Revanth Reddy stressed multiple times the involvement of K.T. Rama Rao's office in the TSPSC paper leaks case. The BRS is worried about lakhs of youth, who were affected by the issue, adversely influencing their poll performances,” PCC general secretary and Nirudyoga JAC chairman, Manavata Rai, told Deccan Chronicle.

“All parties accept that around 40 lakh youth were affected, which indicates the extent of

unemployment in the state. BRS leaders have claimed multiple times that the KCR government filled most posts in the past eight years, in an attempt to hide the unemployment issue. However, the TSPSC leaks have exposed the unemployment problem in the state,” Rai said.
