“I left home quietly to join thousands of others who were already protesting. If I hadn’t, there would be no meaning to having studied at the same university that Ambedkar did exactly 100 years before,” says Bhavya Narasimhamurthy, the Ivy League graduate who left her plush life back in the United States to come to India to try to make a difference.

As a policy analyst who did her masters in Public Administration and specialised in gender and public policy, she is well versed issues faced by the minorities and how to frame effective policies to combat them.

 

Recently, the Karnataka Public Service Commission’s (KPSC) practises came under fire once more for delaying the release of the results of their recruitment exams.

Even though the main examinations to recruit KAS officers were held in February 2021, 17 months after, the results have not yet been released.

The results for some positions, such as motor vehicle inspectors, first division assistants, and drawing teachers, have already been released, but those for junior engineers and second division assistants have not.

 

Among the few sparse voices who are trying to bring light to the injustice of the KPSC exam issue, Bhavya’s voice stands out loud.

 

Recently, the protest the organised by the Congress, heralded by Bhavya, saw more than 500 agitated students gather to demand the release of the exam results at the Udyoga Soudha, which is the head office of the KPSC.

Students had earlier taken to social media to express their agitation regarding this issue, since there are over 3000 government job vacancies that are yet to be allotted to students yet no results have been announced. Students claim that they have put their life on hold to be able to study in hopes of clearing the KPSC exams and this has put a stop to all their aspirations.
