Social media on Saturday witnessed another student agitation close on the heels of huge protests against the government’s decision to conduct NEET and JEE amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
These government job aspirants protested over the delayed results of the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) of the Staff Selection Commission (SSC-CGL) exam and the Railway Recruitment Board’s Non-Technical Popular Categories (RRB NTPC) recruitment test.
On March 22, India observed ‘Janata Curfew’ and supported the call by PM Modi for clapping and beating Thalis for hailing the COVID-19 warriors. Mocking the event, aspirants arranged an event wherein they clapped and beat thalis and clanged pots to express their solidarity with unemployed youth.
As the students geared up for the protest on social media, #5Baje5Minutes became one of the top trends on Twitter, even as other protestors too joined in demanding employment from the government.
Here are some videos from the event:
