Rahul GandhiNew Delhi: Assuring the delegation of civil service aspirants, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today said that the necessary steps will be taken to redress their grievances about sudden change in the pattern of the examination.

The delegation had claimed that the changes were unfair to those coming from a rural background.¬†Gandhi told the students that he was “in agreement” with them and would make every effort to address their problems.

“Gandhi said he is of the belief that before making any big change in the examination pattern, it is necessary to talk to all sections and know their viewpoint,” a Congress release said.

The delegation which called on Gandhi was led by NSUI President Rohit Chauhdary. Civil service aspirants have been protesting in the national capital and elsewhere over the recent move by the government to introduce new examination rules.

They had held a massive protest march outside Parliament in December last year demanding a revision of the new rules introduced by the Union Public Services Commission.

“All we want is three extra attempts, age relaxation for three years and reduction in the Civil Service Aptitude Test examination weightage for the benefit of rural candidates,” aspirants had said during the December protest last year.
