The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen on Wednesday demanded that the Physical Measurement Test (PMT) for recruitment to the posts of Sub-Inspector and Constables in Telangana Police be either held before Ramzan or after the end of holy month.
MIM General Secretary and Charminar MLA Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri met Telangana DGP Anurag Sharma and Telangana State Level Police Recruitment Board chairman Purnachandra Rao requesting them not to hold the test during the month of Ramzan, the month of fasting for Muslims. He informed them that the holy month of Ramzan is likely to begin to 7th June. He said it would be difficult for thousands of Muslim candidates to appear for physical test while fasting.
Both the DGP and TSLPRB Chairman have assured that either the physical tests would either be conducted after Ramzan or the Muslim candidates would be given an alternate date to appear for the test. (INN)
