IMPHAL, April 28: The Joint Action Coordinating Committee (JACC) has condemned the negligence of Manipur Public Service Commission in setting question papers of the examination held on April 24.
It was stated by JACC convener Moirangthem Angamba in a press conference at the office of the Democratic Students’ Alliance of Manipur.
He continued that a committee must be formed to investigate the gross negligence while setting the question paper which must be highlighted to the people.
The questions set in the objective type format have some missing answers, he said, and added that some questions having repeated options were also detected.
Elaborating that MPSC gave option B as the correct answer for question no 31 in the answer key whereas the right answer is option D.
“Option D is provided as answer to question number 174 but option A and B is similar in the answer key. The correct answer to the question is option C since the same question was asked in the 2012 UPSC examination. The answer to question number 9 provided by MPSC is option C which should be option A. The same question was asked in the UPSC examination in 2001.”
Moirangthem Angamba said that for question no 109 the answer provided by MPSC is option D but the answer should be option A and for question number 67 the right answer is option D but the answer key of MPSC is gave the correct option as A, adding that question number 47, 42, 46, 19 are controversial.
He demanded that concerned authority must provide grace marks to candidates who have ticked the correct key as the key provided by the MPSC is wrong.
The examination conducted by MPSC keeps on having mistakes till which is due to the negligence of the authority concerned, he said, alleging that there is no transparency in the examination conducted by the MPSC.
