Srinagar: Scores of candidates who recently qualified the Panchayat Accounts Assistant examinations staged a protest on Tuesday against the authorities for failing to publicize the final selection list of the aspirants.
According to a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO), the Panchayat Accounts Assistants aspirants assembled at Press Enclave to press for their demands.
Mehbooba Hussain, one of the protesters said that after the declaration of results in December last year, they were told that the final selection list of the candidates will be out within 45 days.
“However, over 100 days have elapsed since the results were out, but the candidates are still awaiting the final selection list,” he said.
He added a total of 1889 who passed the examinations conducted through SSB last year, have been awaiting the final selection list and are keen to serve the Union Territory.
Meanwhile, the candidates appealed to the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to personally intervene into the matter and ensure that the final selection list is made public without any further delay. (KNO)
