UPSC CSAT row: Arvind Verma committee submits report to Centre

Jul 31, 2014 07:21 PM IST India India

New Delhi: Even as protests over the UPSC Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) continue, the Arvind Verma committee, which was setup to study if changes are required in the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination pattern, has submitted its report to the government. The Narendra Modi government is likely to apprise Parliament on Friday on the way ahead.

Speaking on the recent developments over the row, Union Minister Jitender Singh assured a positive decision for better future of the aspirants. He further urged the protesting students to stay calm.

Protests over the Civil Services Aptitude Test rocked Parliament on Thursday. In the Lok Sabha, Samajwadi Party, Congress and BJD MPs objected to UPSC aspirants being lathicharged in Delhi on Wednesday night. Some BJP MPs also objected to the incident.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu had to intervene and say that the government is looking for a solution to the issue.

Protesting aspirants were forcibly removed by the police on Wednesday night while some were lathicharged. The police claimed that a few protesters tried to torch a police booth and pelted stones, but the protesters have denied the charges.
