New Delhi: A Lok Sabha member on Wednesday castigated the army for asking job aspirants to take written test only in their lower undergarments at a recruitment exam in Bihar and sought action against the officers involved.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Anupriya Patel (Apna Dal) said there could not be a more "shameful and ridiculous" incident and urged the government to issue strict directions to the army in this regard and take action against officers involved in the exercise.
"There could not be a more shameful and ridiculous examination. You cannot play with the respect of those seeking jobs. I will urge the government to issue strict instructions to the army. Action should be taken against those officers," she said, drawing support from some other members.
Army had held a recruitment test in Muzaffarpur in Bihar in which aspirants were asked to take the exam only in their lower undergarments. Reports said it was done to prevent cheating.
