Asocial media post is going viral with a claim that 29-year-old Rajesh Tiwari, a civil service aspirant from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, who despite scoring 643 in UPSC Civil Service exam, has “failed” because the “cut off for General Category was 689 this year”. The post is accompanied by a picture of a man crying, holding a file in his hand.
The post goes on to criticise the reservation system in the country saying “for SC/ST it was 601. So according to this the one who have got 601 will become our next bureaucrat (sic).” A verified Facebook user has also posted the same and the post can be seen here.
