RS Praveen Kumar, former Indian Police Service (IPS) officer and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader who had announced a fast-unto-death protest over the recent TSPSC paper leak case, has ended his hunger strike after the Telangana government decided to cancel all the leaked exams.
In a tweet, RS Praveen Kumar said, “Telangana has won over corrupt TSPSC today. I ended my ‘Fast Unto Death’ following the decision to cancel all the leaked exams. But #BSP will continue to fight till all the real culprits in TSPSC are arrested and the inefficient chairman is removed from the post.” RS Praveen Kumar had been leading a campaign against the TSPSC paper leak and had demanded a thorough investigation into the matter. He had also alleged that the paper leak was a part of a larger nexus involving politicians, bureaucrats, and businessmen.
He had accused the state government of not taking adequate measures to prevent such incidents in the future. The TSPSC examination is conducted for the recruitment of various government posts in the state, and the paper leak case has caused widespread outrage and anger among the people. Several political leaders and activists had demanded a thorough investigation into the matter and action against the culprits.
The state government had formed a special investigation team to look into the matter, and several arrests had already been made. However, many activists and leaders had criticized the government’s response and demanded stronger action. While the decision to cancel the exams has been welcomed by many, RS Praveen Kumar and the BSP party have demanded that the government take stronger action against the culprits and ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future. They have also called for the removal of the TSPSC chairman and for a thorough investigation into the matter. The BSP party has called for a statewide protest against the TSPSC paper leak and demanded justice for the candidates who had been affected by the incident.
