Recruitment in F&ES: Aspirants stage protest, demand selection list


Srinagar, Feb 02: The candidates, who appeared in the recently held written test for Recruitment in Fire and Emergency Services, Saturday staged a protest against the authorities for causing delay in releasing the final selection list of aspirants.

Scores of aspirants assembled at Srinagar’s Press Enclave and chanted slogans in favour of justice. They expressed resentment against the authorities for allegedly playing delaying tactics in making the selection list of candidates’ public.


One of the aspirants said that it is for the second time they appeared in the examinations for the posts.

“In 2013, we appeared in the written as well as fitness test but the selection list was declared by the authorities, citing 2014 floods, saying that all the records got vanished in the floods,” Ahmad Tariq, an aspirant said.

He said that they appeared in the written test and other tests for the second time in December last year and were promised that selection list will be publicized soon.

“However, a month has elapsed since they appeared in the tests but there seems no headway over the selection list,” he said, adding that they approached to the Director General of Fire and Emergency Services recently and urged him to declare the selection list soon.
