According to the party’s Chief Spokesperson Salman Nizami, the Jammu and Kashmir administration appears to have flouted all rules and regulations and chosen APTECH for the services despite the fact that the company is blacklisted in numerous states and has been fined by the Supreme Court.
Many states, including Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan, have blacklisted the selected APTECH company, and the Supreme Court has penalised it for failing to uphold the integrity of the exam-conducting process.
Salman Nizami, Chief Spokesman of the Azad Democratic Progressive Party (DPAP), took to Twitter to criticise the move, claiming that APTECH has failed to ensure transparency and accountability in the past, which is why many states have banned it.
Lending his support to the JKSSB aspirants on Twitter , Co- founder Study IQ, one of India’s leading Ed-tech startup, Dr Gaurav Garg said, “Why is a blacklisted company like Aptech given the mandate in the first place? Why is the administration tampering with the future of Jammu and Kashmir’s youth? Everyone must rally behind the JKSSB candidates.”
“There are many companies like TCS that have done a great job in organising exams on the scale of IBPS in India,” he added. Why are such companies ignored by JKSSB while a criminal and corrupt blacklisted company such as Aptech is given the mandate?”
Averting a disaster is better than investigation after a disaster has occurred.
Prevention is better than cure.
