THE SECOND hearing on the plea filed against Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission (MPPSC) by dissatisfied aspirants of the Civil Service main exam under the banner of MPPSC Pratiyogi Chhatra Sanghthan was held in the High Court at Jabalpur on Friday.
Meanwhile, the students have now brought their fight at the doorsteps of the MPSSC headquarters by filing public interest litigation with the Indore bench of the HC on the same grounds.
Advocate Jitendra Tiwari, who is representing the students, said over phone from Jabalpur that the MPPSC had at last woken up from sleep and had asked for an additional copy of the plaint during the second hearing Friday.
The advocate representing MPPSC sought time and said they had not yet received any correspondence by the court asking for
details and documents. Tiwari said, “The court had asked MPPSC to submit its stance along with documentary proof during the first hearing.” The next hearing has been scheduled after 10 days.
The aspirants had gone to court after the main exams, alleging mass scale irregularities and corruption in which they also cited references of answer copies going missing, questions being repeated from a magazine. MPPSC has been asked to explain its scaling methodology, which has raised doubts among students. The PIL filed in Indore goes a step further and asks for answer sheets of those who have passed the main exam to be compared with those who have not.
