Thousands of students of Bihar are protesting against the rigging in the RRB NTPC examination. The students are gathering around the railway stations in Patna and other cities of Bihar, hence affecting the railway services.
The students protested at Rajendra Nagar railway station in Patna on Monday evening. In order to control the situation, police forces were deployed at Rajendra Nagar Railway station.
The students were sitting on the track for over 6 hours. This comes in line with Railway releasing the RRB CBT-1 result.
Students are raising allegations that Railway said that shortlisting will be done at the rate of 20 times of vacancies.
However, students are saying that the Railway passed students at the rate of 4 times of vacancies.
The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) was scheduled to release the category-wise result in CBT 2.
However, it has been released in the CBT 1 result itself. A user tweeted, “You said you will pass 20 candidates but in reality you passed only 4 times, if this isn’t a scam then what is this?”
Railway Ministry issues clarification:
The Railway Ministry had given clarification regarding this recruitment.
The clarification given by the Ministry of Railways said that it was nowhere mentioned that seven lakh different candidates would be selected for the second stage Computer Based Examination (CBT 2).
RRB NTPC CBT 2 Exam 2022 second stage consists of a computer-based test (CBT) of five different levels and in which a candidate can be selected for more than one level according to eligibility, merit and choice, the statement said.
So in the list of seven lakh roll numbers, some names will appear in more than one list.
Railway route diverted:
Due to the uproar by the protesting candidates, the railways had to divert the routes of many trains.
The Vikramshila Express from Bhagalpur to New Delhi went via Kiul Junction in Bihar and then was diverted towards Anand Vihar.
Bhagalpur Intercity and Koshi Express trains remained standing at Patna Junction for two hours.
