JKSSB job aspirants protest in Srinagar, demand ban on Aptech

SRINAGAR — Scores of Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) job aspirants gathered here in Press Enclave on Wednesday to protest against the purported grant of a contract to Aptech Limited for the conduct of various exams.

The protesters, as per the news agency GNS, demanded that the LG administration must investigate why paper leak and scam issues only occur in Kashmir.

“All blacklisted companies should be banned in Jammu and Kashmir. Until action is taken against these blacklisted companies, no student will sit for any competitive exams,” the protestors opined.

The protesters pointed out that Aptech Limited has been involved in numerous scams in other parts of the country including Rajasthan, Leh, Ambala, and others.

“Many national papers have also highlighted these scams and nothing significant is being done to allay the apprehensions of the job aspirants,” they said.

The protesters demanded that the Lieutenant Governor administration should rise to the occasion and take necessary measures for the larger benefit of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
