The Osmania University Joint Action Committee and Telangana Political Joint Action Committee, on Wednesday, demanded that the state government direct the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission to postpone the Group I examinations scheduled to be held on September 5, till the government decides on the issue of 40% quota in recruitments for Telangana candidates.
Talking to media persons, the JAC members stated that without clarifying its stand on the quota issue, the APPSC could not go ahead with conducting the Group-1 examination.
The JAC leaders said that since the APPSC has refused to postpone
the scheduled date of September 5, a meeting was called at the Osmania University to chalk out the future course of action on the quota demand.
The APPSC should implement reservation for all communities from the stage of the preliminary examination itself, on the lines of UPSC, they asserted.
The JAC members declared that they would hold a candlelight vigil at all Telangana educational institutions on September 3.
They threatened that the government would be held responsible for any dire consequences that take place in the state in this regard. The members also demanded the removal of APPSC chairman Venkataram Reddy as many corruption charges were pending against him.
The JACs will announce their final decision after convening a meeting with student bodies on Thursday.
