The ongoing protest by job aspirants and students on Wednesday turned violent when a large number of agitators set several coaches of the New Delhi-bound Shramjeevi Express train on fire in Bihar’s Gaya.
As a large number of protesters were protesting in Patna, Arrah and Buxar, the Rajgir-New Delhi Shramjeevi express train was diverted towards Gaya to go to Deen Dayal Upadhyay (Mugal Sarai) and then further towards New Delhi. The students and the job aspirants were protesting against the fresh notification of the Indian Railways wherein it has finalized two examinations.
The agitators said that there was only one examination in the earlier notification in 2019, now RRB has issued a fresh notification as well and given a provision of two examinations. The officials have also been allegedly involved in irregularities with candidates having 50 marks being passed in the examination while many candidates having 80 to 85 marks have failed.
