Jalandhar, September 26
A huge rush was witnessed at the Jalandhar bus stand as thousands of aspirants appeared for the exam of constables in the district. While over 4 lakh candidates had applied for the same, the exam was held at 187 centres in the state.
In the view of the Bharat bandh call by farmers on Monday, aspirants thronged the bus stand in the evening and jostled with each other to board the buses in order to reach their respective destinations.
Sunil, who appeared for the exam, said, “I have to reach Moga in time. There is a massive rush at the bus stand. I began my journey early in the morning to reach the centre, but seeing the crowd, I am bound to get late.”
Another aspirant Rakesh said, “I have been working as a schoolteacher for the last five years, but due to limited earnings it’s not possible for me to continue. A police job will be hopefully much better. I hope I will make it through this time.” The Police Department had hired a consultancy firm to conduct the examination.
