The protestors gathered outside the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) office in central Delhi and raised slogans against the former UPA government for implementing CSAT in the examination pattern.

Minister of State for Personnel and Public Grievances Jitendra Singh said that the students should maintain patience as the government is concerned about the issue.

"We are concerned about them and, in turn, they should also exercise restraint and have some patience as the government is already at it," he said.

"The youngsters should be advised not to cause any physical or mental agony or harm to themselves because the government is very much seized of the matter," he added.

Meanwhile terming it a ‘conspiracy’, former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad's son Tejashwi Yadav sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intervention in resolving the row.

It may be mentioned here that the aspirants have been objecting to the aptitude test and English language questions asked in the CSAT-II paper, claiming those were much above the standard prescribed for the examination.
