He added, "Actually, UR vacancies do not belong to any category and candidates belonging to all the categories should be called for interviews under the UR category."
This proposal was put forward in a meeting presided by UPPSC chairman Anil Kumar Yadav and it was accepted thereto on May 27.
This decision by UPPSC to open unreserved seats for both reserved category and general category bounced back on it after aspirants preparing for various competitive examinations took to the streets, staging a massive road blockade and restricting movements of traffic on national highway for over six hours on July 10.
The demonstration was followed by indefinite hunger strike from July 11 and filing a petition against reservation at the Allahabad high court on the same day. Rampage and ruckus shook the city on July 15. The agitation is still continuing even as the court hears a petition against it today.
While additional police force has been deployed in Allahabad, the agitation has now spread in Lucknow and other parts of the state as well.
