“All blacklisted companies should be banned in Jammu and Kashmir, until action is taken against these blacklisted companies, no student will sit for any competitive exams,” the protestors said.

“We have seen APTECH Ltd. involvement  in numerous scams in other parts of the country including in Rajasthan, Leh, Ambala, and others. “Many national papers have also highlighted these scams, nothing significant is being done to allay the apprehensions of the job aspirants” they alleged.

“We want the LG administration to rise on this occasion and take necessary measures for the larger benefit of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir”, they added.

Aspirants and political leaders across the spectrum have castigated JKSSB for hiring Aptech after the latest recruitment examination calendar was issued.
