Vibhash Kr a student writes, "Every time an exam gets leaked. It is a serious concern. Due to weak laws against the culprites of paper leak, they have no fear to practice these irregularities. This is against the future of students".
हर बार कोई न कोई परीक्षा का पेपर लीक हो जाता है। यह अत्यंत ही गंभीर मामला है। कानून कमजोर होने के कारण पेपर लीक करने वाले अपराधियों में क़ानूनी कार्रवाई का भी कोई खौफ नहीं होता है। यह देश के भविष्य के साथ खिलवाड़ है। #सिस्टम_वीक_पेपर_लीक #GehlotWeak_PaperLeak— अपरिचित / Aparichit (@aparichit916) October 1, 2021

REET, JEN एवं SI परीक्षा के पेपर लीक प्रकरण को लेकर आज दूसरे दिन भी अभ्यर्थियों के साथ शहीद स्मारक पर धरने पर बैठा हूं।— Dr.Kirodi Lal Meena (@DrKirodilalBJP) October 1, 2021
मुख्यमंत्री जी से मेरी मांग है कि इस प्रकरण की सीबीआई जांच हो जिससे दूध का दूध और पानी का पानी हो जाए। pic.twitter.com/hSYOkgFTtN
In addition to that, former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vashundra Raje also targetted on present state government for irregularities in the examination. Taking to her official twitter handle she writes, "Not only REET, but also in JEN, RAS, and SI the corruption in several government exams have been highlighted. This proves that the Congress government is saling the state jobs".
बात सिर्फ़ #REET की ही नहीं है - #JEN, #RAS एवं #SI परीक्षाओं में भी घोटालेबाजी का खेल सबके सामने आ चुका है। अब तो यह सिद्ध हो गया है - कांग्रेस सरकार में नौकरियाँ नीलाम हो रही हैं।#YouthFirst #Rajasthan— Vasundhara Raje (@VasundharaBJP) September 30, 2021
Apart from it, any official update regarding the cancellation or re-conduct of SI exam has not been made so far. Media reports suggest that there are higher possibilities, especially after the state-wide protest that a serious action be taken by the state government.
