On Wednesday, a large group of individuals who aspire to obtain employment through the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) gathered at the press enclave to demonstrate against the reported contract awarded to APTECH Ltd. for conducting various exams in the Union Territory. The demonstrators urged the LG administration to investigate the issue of frequent paper leaks and scams that occur in Kashmir and take appropriate measures to address it.
The protesters expressed their opinion that all blacklisted companies should be prohibited in Jammu and Kashmir, and until appropriate action is taken against these companies, no student should participate in any competitive exams.
The demonstrators highlighted that APTECH Ltd. has been embroiled in several scams in various parts of the country, such as Rajasthan, Leh, and Ambala, as reported by numerous national newspapers. Despite this, they feel that not enough action has been taken to address the concerns of job seekers.The protesters urged the Lieutenant Governor administration to take decisive actions that would benefit the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
