Pune, 23rd February 2023: Students in Pune have been protesting against the Maharashtra Public Service Commission’s decision to implement a new pattern of the exam. The students have demanded that the implementation be delayed until 2025 due to the sudden change causing potential losses for many students.

Despite two previous protests and a request from Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, the Commission had refused to change its decision. As a result, thousands of students began a hunger strike at Balgandharva Chowk for the past two days to show their support for the cause.

On Tuesday night, NCP President Sharad Pawar arrived at the scene, causing a surge in the number of people present. A meeting was scheduled to be held between Chief Minister Shinde, Pawar, and student representatives in Mumbai, but it became clear that no decision would be made there as the Chief Minister was in Pune since yesterday morning. However, after discussions, the Commission tweeted that the new syllabus would be implemented from 2025, removing the need to implement it from 2023 as previously planned.

This decision was met with great relief and cheers from the students present at Balgandharva Chowk. The Chief Minister also welcomed the Commission’s decision and wished the students the best for their future endeavors. While it is unclear what caused the Commission to change its stance, it is evident that the students’ peaceful protests had a significant impact in achieving their goal.

The Commission’s decision to implement the new syllabus from 2025 will ensure that students have ample time to prepare themselves for the upcoming changes.
