Markapur: The candidates appearing for the Group III Panchayat Secretary Qualification exam at Markapur faced hardships and tasted the negligence of the officials at the highest degree, on Sunday.
There is Trinity Occasional College in Markapur and Vijayasai Occasional College in Bestavaripet.
The Vijayasai Occasional College shifted their campus to Trinity Occasional College in Markapur and informed the government that the two colleges are running at different buildings in the same address.
For Group III exams, the APPSC has allotted a total of 800 students to Trinity Occasional College and Vijayasai Occasional College. But by the time the students reached the college for taking the exam, they found that there is no Vijayasai Occasional College in the Trinity Occasional College and it can provide seating arrangement for hardly 200 students. As the exam should start at 10.00 am, the students protested in front of Trinity College.
The RDO G Ramakrishna Reddy, DSP G Nageswara Reddy reached to the spot and tried to pacify the students and discussed the issue with the college management for making extra arrangements. As the college management expressed helplessness, they arranged another exam centre at George Pharmacy College, near to Trinity College after explaining the issue to its secretary Satish.
After making necessary arrangements at the George Pharmacy College, the exam started at 11.30 am, after taking necessary permission from the higher authorities. The students complained to the DSP and RDO to initiate action on Trinity Occasional College and Vijayasai Occasional College for not running the colleges without the required infrastructure and at the registered addresses.
The officials announced that they will take the issue to the concerned departments and see how come the colleges are said to be operating without any classes being conducted for the students and necessary classrooms for them.
