“Nearly 2 Lakh candidates, mainly from the rural part of Maharashtra, travel to the 50 MPSC test centers in cities to take the written MPSC tests. This is rather premature and risky as it can lead to the spread of the coronavirus I have therefore written to the Prime Minister and other government agencies to cancel the MPSC exams this year, “Panvel activist Vishnu Gavali said.
He added: “Last year, university exams like TYBCom were canceled or suspended. So why not the MPSC exams? Many poor young people from rural areas like Beed, Kolhapur, Latur, Sangli travel a few days in advance, among other things the exam centers and often try to sleep at bus stops or other public places in cities. Such a scenario must be avoided in the current times. ”
Another Nerul-based activist, Anarjit Chauhan, said: “The process of hiring various government departments such as agriculture, local government, police and revenue is through, among other things, these MPSC reviews that are held in 37 districts each year. If the state believes that these trials cannot be avoided, we call on the Maharashtra government to ensure strict social detachment, but many citizens believe that the trials can be further delayed to address public health problems avoid. ”
