There has been a ruckus in the Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission i.e. MPPSC exam when a controversial question was asked on Kashmir. In the prelims exam held on June 19 of MPPSC, it was asked – should India decide to give Kashmir to Pakistan? Congress has demanded to register a case of sedition against those responsible in this case. At the same time, the Home Minister of the state has said about the investigation.
Here, after the controversy escalated, MPPSC Chairman Dr. Rakesh Lal Mehra has said that the number of controversial questions will not be counted. He has also said to call objections on the remaining questions of the examination. Before proceeding further in the news, you should see the screenshot of the controversial question asked in MPPSC..

MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra has also considered this question objectionable. He has spoken of writing a letter to the PSC and the Higher Education Department for action against the two people who set the paper. Here, the President of Congress Thought Department, Bhupendra Gupta has said that the government should tell what is the agenda of the PSC administration behind such anti-national questions?
Chairman said – action on expert moderator, but name is confidential
MPPSC Chairman said that the objectionable question has been deleted from the paper. The experts and moderators who set the paper have been debarred for life. They will never be taken forward. However, the names of those against whom action has been taken will be kept confidential. Meanwhile, information has been received that these people who set the paper are from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
The chairman also said that since this question will not come up in the counting, there will be no loss to any candidate. MPPSC will now call objections on the rest of the questions as well. In this, the further process will be started soon after consulting on the statutory facts.
Expert-moderator’s intervention in paper making to printing

MPPSC exam was held on June 19 at 944 centers

There has been a ruckus on the question of PSC in the past too.
In Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission’s State Service Preliminary Examination-2019 held on 12 January 2020, there was a lot of ruckus regarding the questions asked in relation to the Bhil tribe. Then there was Kamal Nath’s government in the state. While in opposition, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had demanded action.
Kamal Nath, who was then the CM, had issued a statement by ordering an inquiry – the guilty should be punished for this reprehensible act. After this all the five questions related to the Bhil tribe were removed. MPPSC had to clarify by holding a press conference.
