ntpc: RRB-NTPC result row: Railway minister urges job aspirants not to destroy their ‘own property’ | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Wednesday urged job aspirants protesting over alleged erroneous results of the Railway Recruitment Board’s Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC) exam to not destroy their “own property”.
Vaishnaw said due process will be followed if the agitating job aspirants damage public property.
“Appeal all students not to get involved in damaging rail or any other properties. There is no political issue. The exam was done with all transparency,” the railway minister said.
The minister assured the candidates that the chief ministers are working sensitively and urged them to put forth grievances formally.
“A high power committee has been formed to look into the concerns and doubts raised by candidates in regard to results of 1st Stage Computer Based Test (CBT) of Centralized Employment Notification (CEN) 01/2019 of Non Technical Popular Categories (NTPC) issued by Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) on 14-15th January 2022,” the Railways said in a statement.
The panel will give its recommendations by March 4. The panel will accept suggestions and objections from candidates till February 16.
Earlier today, Railways suspended its NTPC and Level 1 tests after violent protests by job aspirants over the selection process of its recruitment exams.
On Tuesday, the Railways had warned the agitating students against indulging in vandalism and damaging railway properties.
“Videos of such activities will be examined with the help of specialized agencies and candidates/aspirants found indulged in unlawful activities will be liable for police action as well as lifetime debarment from obtaining a railway job,” the Tuesday notice stated and advised the job aspirants/candidates not to be misguided or come under the influence of such elements who are trying to use them for fulfilling their own selfish ends.
The warning came a day after railway job aspirants squatted on tracks at different places in Bihar.
