Srinagar, Jan 5 (GNS): Apni Party president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Tuesday demanded re-examination for the Banking Associates aspirants who failed to reach the examination centres across Kashmir division due to heavy snowfall.
In a statement issued here, Bukhari urged the Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene into the matter and get the JK Bank recruitment examination rescheduled for such aspirants who were stranded because of the inclement weather and could not appear at the examination centres.
“Conducting an important examination in a hostile weather condition, smacks of non-application of mind by the Bank’s recruitment authorities! When the Universities and other government recruitment agencies postponed examinations in view of the snowfall, why didn’t the JK Bank rescheduled its exams for the convenience of the aspirants and its examination staff?” Bukhari asked.
He said that hundreds of candidates from different parts of the Valley were eagerly waiting for the JK Bank examination for the last few years and many such candidates were unable to reach the examination venues because most of the roads are snowbound.
“A heavy spell of snowfall was expected and predicted by the MET department a week ago. This unprecedented situation left scores of banking associate aspirants and students, appearing in examinations, stranded. I appeal to Lt. Governor to intervene into the matter on humanitarian grounds so that these stranded candidates are not deprived of this golden opportunity,” he pleaded. (GNS)
