Police Constable Recruitment & MPTET Emerged As Vyapam Scam

Story Highlights
  • There are serious allegations of rigging the results of PTET 2020.
  • More than 12.72 lakh youths applied for 6,000 posts of constables.
  • CM Chouhan to take action on immediate basis.

Bhopal: Strongly criticising the State government, Congress MLA Jitu Patwari has alleged that police constable recruitment and MPTET exams have emerged as Vyapam scam 2. Patwari was talking to the media here on Wednesday. President of Congress media department, Patwari said that all rules were floated in the exams. “More than 12.72 lakh youths applied for 6,000 posts of constables.

Surprisingly, the exam was organized from January 8th, 2022 to February 17th, 2022 in 74 shifts,” said Patwari. Raising questions, Patwari said going by the figures that PEB has made public, about 10,784 students appeared in one shift at all centres across the state, which means less than 100 students at one exam centre. “This raises suspicion as to why the tests were dragged for over 41 days – especially considering the past record of Vyapam,” said Patwari.

It also needs to be highlighted that exams were outsourced to an agency and crores of rupees were wasted. Professional Examination Board, earlier known as Vyapam, also overlooked ex-army quota in constable recruitment, he added. Besides, candidates have said that they received phone calls. The callers demanded money to increase their numbers. “Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should immediately take action,” Patwari demanded.
