Mumbai/Pune, 11th March 2021: After massive protest by candidates in Pune against the postponement of the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) exam, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray today announced that the test will be conducted within eight days after March 14 (which was the scheduled date).

“Are the places where the students are going to take the exams safe? Are the staff who will conduct the exams safe? All these things will have to be taken care of. Instructions have been given to conduct the COVID test of staff who will distribute the paper, supervise or conduct the test”, he said.

The Chief Minister further said that the career issue of the youth who enter the service of the state government by giving competitive examination is just as important for the government as it is for the youth. “Postponing the exam will not harm any student due to the age limit. The decision to postpone the exam was taken for the safety of the candidates. Students should exercise restraint without falling into any confusion, without falling prey to delusional thoughts”, Thackeray added.

The Chief Minister also appealed to the opposition parties not to play with the feelings and health of the students. “Today, 80 percent of infected people do not have symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID19). If they are allowed to be home quarantined, they are seen walking around thinking that nothing will happen to me, thus their family members get affected”, Thackeray informed.

He further said, “Efforts are being made to prevent this wave of Corona from escalating. We have enough healthcare facilities available today. So, if you don’t want lockdown, then you have to follow the three principles of wearing a mask, keeping distance, washing hands. Even after vaccination, it is necessary to follow these three principles.”
