Prayagraj [राज्य ब्यूरो], Contestants have opened a front against the release of the cutoff of Preliminary Eligibility Test (PET) in the Lekhpal Recruitment Examination of Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UPSSSC). The Commission has released the cut off marks of 62.96 for Unreserved, Other Backward Classes and Economically Weaker Sections, 61.80 for Scheduled Castes, 44.71 for Scheduled Tribes. The protesting contestants have raised the demand to reduce the cut-off. For this, a campaign was launched on Twitter on Sunday.

#JUSTICEFORUPLEKHPALSTUDENT continued to trend on Twitter on Sunday. Nearly two lakh tweets were done till evening. It has also been tagged CM UP Office, M Yogi Adityanath, Twitter handle of UP Govt. Contestants Sanjay Yadav, Pradeep Pandey, Neelam Pandey, Niyaz Ahmed, Anirudh Pandey say that the commission has done injustice to the candidates.

The commission released the exam calendar in the year 2021. In that PET was proposed in August, which was done on time. In this, the Lekhpal recruitment exam was proposed in November 2021, which is now proposed on June 19. Lekhpal recruitment exam form came in January 2022. If the commission had released the cut off marks of PET at the same time, why would 13 lakh candidates have applied? With no cut off marks being issued, those who had low marks also applied and started preparing for the exam. For coaching, also spent Rs.

As there are 8085 posts in the Revenue Lekhpal Recruitment Exam, the competitors took it as a big opportunity. Now by releasing the high cutoff marks on May 5, 2022, the Commission snatched the opportunity of appearing in the recruitment examination from a large number of candidates.

According to Sanjay Yadav, against this arbitrariness of the commission, on Monday, a large number of candidates will submit a representation to the chairman and secretary of the Subordinate Services Selection Commission, Lucknow. Their demand is to remove the arbitrary cutoff and declare a qualifying cutoff mark. If the demand is not accepted, the candidates will approach the court.
