Jammu, Oct 7: Corruption and irregularities in Fire and Emergency Services Selection list will not be tolerated at any cost and if not resolved we will be forced to take agitation path, said Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) J&K President Arun Dev Singh while addressing a Press Conference at Party headquarter, Trikuta Nagar.
Arun Dev said that Fire and Emergency Services Selection list which was released on 3rd of October and the selected candidates were asked to join within 2 days is highly suspicious. He said that the exam which was advertised in 2013 has been conducted 3 times since then due to corruption and favouritism allegations everytime.
He mentioned many disparities in the selection list like the exam question paper was leaked on what’s app to favour the favourable candidates, Birth Dates of many selected candidates are not mentioned to favour under and over age candidates, 8th passed candidates have scored more than the PhD and PG passed candidates, selection of over 200 candidates from district Budgam, name of same candidates being mentioned in selection as well waiting lists. He further raised his concerns in alleged discrimination against the candidates of Jammu division which a grave matter on concern.
Arun Dev also urged the Hon’ble Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to take immediate cognizance of the matter and provide relief to the aggrieved candidates by scrapping the selection list with immediate effect.

He warned the concerned authorities that BJYM J&K will fight to bring justice to the hardworking and meritorious candidates in Court as well as on the roads. He also said that BJYM J&K will start a mass agitation across the UT of J&K if the grievances of aggrieved candidates are not duly addressed in matter of few days.
