Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav has hit out at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state over the leak of Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Service Selection Commission (UPSSSC) examination paper.
Taking to microblogging site Twitter, the former chief minister called the Yogi Adityanath government insensitive, saying that repeated leaks of question papers of different examinations badly impact those who are unemployed.
एक बार फिर पेपर लीक और रद्द हुआ. इस बार ये कारनामा UPSSSC की परीक्षा में हुआ. बार-बार विभिन्न परीक्षाओं के पेपर लीक होने से बेरोज़गारों पर क्या गुज़रती है, ये बात ये संवेदनहीन सरकार क्या जाने. ये प्रदेश में बढ़ रहे भ्रष्टाचार और सत्ताधारियों-अपराधियों की साँठगाँठ का प्रमाण है.

The Samajwadi Party leader further alleged that the latest incident of UPSSSC examination paper leak is a proof of growing corruption in the state and nexus between those in government and criminals.
Akhilesh Yadav tweeted, “There’s yet another case of paper leak and cancellation of examination. This time it has happened in UPSSSC examination. What effect repeated paper leaks have on unemployed youth, this insensitive government cannot understand. This is a proof of growing corruption and nexus between those holding power and the criminals in the state.”
The UPSSSC examination for selection of tube well operators was initially scheduled for September 1, but postponed because of the paper leak. The Uttar Pradesh Police launched a probe and has made 11 arrests in the case so far.
The special task force of the Uttar Pradesh Police also recovered mobile phones, documents and Rs 15 lakh in cash during the investigation.
The Lucknow District Magistrate spoked to mediapersons about the investigation into the case. He said that government authorities had taken note of the incident, adding that fresh dates for the examination would be declared soon.
