The DMK Chief M.Karunanidhi wrote a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, sounghting immediate withdrawal of the notification that was made by the UPSc officials which is truly affecting the rural aspirants. Today, he joined a host of parties opposing this notification and describing that it is an attempt to impose Hindi and that this move will further affect rural applicants.
He said "This restriction which says that 'only when there is a minimum number of 25 candidates qualified in a particular language, will be permitted to write their answers in that particular language' is not applicable to Hindi and English. In the Main exams, candidates can write answers only in the Language which was the medium of their degree courses".
He mentioned that "This 'prescription' will definitely reduce the number of candidates opting to write in regional languages. These restrictions, which bar rural applicants in the Civil Service (Main) Exmainations, open up broad gateway to urban aspirants who study in Hindi or English Medium".
He assured that further, this changes shall lead to an 'Unhealthy and Unequal Competition' between the Rural and Urban applicants.
Who do you think will be the next to oppose the change? Will UPSC withdraw its announcements? Is just to Wait and Watch.
