UPSC protest: Commuters hassled by shut Metro stations
Friday July 25, 2014 5:01 PM, IANS

Thousands of commuters Friday faced a harrowing time as the Delhi Metro shut two of its busy stations for more than two hours following a protest by UPSC aspirants.

The Central Secretariat and Udyog Bhavan Metro stations, both on the yellow line, were closed from 12.45 p.m. till 3 p.m.

"As advised by Delhi Police, the Central Secretariat and Udyog Bhavan stations remained closed. However, these reopened at 3 p.m.," a Delhi Metro official said.

More than 500 Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) aspirants have been protesting in central and north Delhi, demanding the scrapping of the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT), calling it discriminatory against those with Hindi background.

The CSAT is a compulsory part of the civil services examination, acting as a screening test before the main examination.
