today described the preliminary entrance exam conducted today
by the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) amid

TRS and various people`s organisations, he added.
When pointed out that a good number of candidates
appeared for the examination even in Telangana region,
Chandrasekhar Rao said attendance was thin at several places.
