Another aspirant, Anjali alleged that the Government was playing with the careers of Border Battalion candidates by allowing extra candidates for same number of posts in a re-advertisement.
While extending its support to the aspirants, the Ikkjutt Jammu Yuvva President, Ajay Singh Saini said Government should conduct the written examination of the aspirants who have already cleared the physical and medical fitness tests, as most of the candidates are getting over aged and for the last three years have been waiting for their written examination and therefore it is hard for them to compete with the new candidates.”
They appealed to the LG Manoj Sinha to intervene and help them to get the conduct of written exam at the earliest.
