As there are allegations of question paper leakage to benefit a few belonging to the staff of APPSC. Naidu and Lokesh demanded that the government should conduct re-examination for recruitment. As a reaction to this, they made a challenge.
They asked, “We are throwing an open challenge to Naidu and Lokesh. If the government conducts a re-examination. Will the TDP chief and his son write the exam competing with the merit candidates and pass the test?”
The five deputy CM's said that they would do so only if Lokesh proved his merit over the State rankers in the exam. As Naidu wanted the government to scrap the exam and conduct it afresh to save the image of the APPSC. According to the AP Deputies, BC, SC and ST candidates have secured the top ranks in the exam.
