Finally, the Government of Andhra Pradesh is taking a bold stand with regards to the protagonists of Telangana. It has ruled out their demand of postponing the Group-I preliminary examinations and reserve a 42% quota for the postings.
The Telangana agitators have demandedd that they would boycott the examinations and would not allow the examinations go on. Even before the AP government could take up their demands, another demand arose from the rest of the state, which warned the Government to not postpone the examinations.
Considering both the arguments and acting tough on the Telangana agitators, the APPSC board has ruled that the examinations which are scheduled on September 5 would be held as usual without any postponement. It is a bold decision which is to the tune of the wishes of majority of the candidates. Most of the candidates appearing for the examination would have been put in the quandry if there was a postponement.
It is to be seen of to what would be the next step of Telangana protagonists. The state government would do its credibility a world of good if it conducts these coming examinations smoothly without a hitch. But it seems hardly the case.
Let’s hope that the law&order will prevail in the state unlike the recent incidents which we witnessed in the Osmanina University.
