Imphal, Feb 28
Group of Aspirants of MCSCC (main) Exam 2016 while appreciating the demand by DESAM,AIMS and ANSAM for punishment of those guilty in connection with Quashed MCSCC (mains) Exam 2016, said that the three students’ bodies should clarify regarding the innocent candidates/officers mentioned by them for whom the state government needs to take necessary steps to protect its sincere/innocent employees by filing appeal or Special Leave petition before Supreme Court of India.
A statement by the MCSCC (main) Exam 2016 aspirant said that most of the candidates ( selected as well as non selected ) appearing in the said examination are innocent except those who may have used corrupt means in toto with concerned authority to get selection, if any. So, we will be grateful to the Student Organisations if they demand the Government to consider the grievances of the most of the candidates who appeared in the said examination including unsuccessful ones.
It said that the judgment and order of the special Division Bench of the High Court of Manipur dated 18.10.2019 that MCSCC (Main) exam, 2016 cannot be said to be an examination at all, in true sense, keeping in mind the cumulative effect of the lapses and irregularities. In addition to this, it is also clearly mentioned in the judgment and order of the Supreme Court of India dated 22.11.19 that illegalities committed go to the root of the matter which is vitiates the process of selection.
The statement further said that the MPSC conducted the said examination without following some of its “Conduct of Business rules” and even without framing specific rules like conducting the exam i) By the Secretary taking the charge of the Controller of Examination ii) Without any evaluation and tabulation rules iii) Giving no guidelines to the examiner iv) Appointing No Head Examiner and so on.
The statement added that they hope the three student bodies will do the needful for the welfare of the candidates and for the whole state considering facts and circumstances.
Injustice has been meted out to both the selected and non selected candidates and if one considers it deeply, injustice has been done more to the non-selected candidates. Selected candidates were in service for some years and they were paid salary. They have both financial resources as well as muscles power having good connection with authority. But for the non selected candidates, all they had to do was fight for the cause facing financial difficulties and social stigma being tagged as “Stubborn Failed candidates”. Despite having such troublesome situation, we still prepare for various competitive examinations, said the statement.
While the selected candidates have lost only few month post the quashing of the exam, for the non selected candidates have wasted more than 3 years from the day the exam result was declared. All the candidates appearing in the examination have inter alia wasted precious time, money and livelihood.
The MCSCC (main) Exam 2016 aspirants also added that they would appreciate if the student organizations had empathized with the sufferings of the non-selected candidates too and not only selected candidates alone. The student organizations are requested to reconsider their views from a broad perspective keeping into accounts that of non-selected candidates, and not from a narrow point of view only keeping the sufferings of the selected candidates alone.
The group of aspirant appeals to DESAM,AIMS,ANSAM and any other student organizations, Intellectuals, Senior Citizen, Concerned authority and people of Manipur to deal proceedings, observations and directions of the Court in this matter and work for the welfare of the candidates as well as for the whole state.
