They have already thrown to the winds the ‘misnomer’ that students from Assam cannot beat their counterparts from rest of the country, and now, they are determined to put the country on fast track with a clean and efficient administration. According to UNI report, with Assam putting 11 students from the state, who cleared the UPSC examinations this year, on a high pedestal, the candidates have also vowed to live up to the expectations of the people. “It is no good to point fingers at corrupt practices adopted by some officials. Instead, we must vow to clean up the mess,” said Ashiquz Zaman, who was placed at the 244th position in the merit list, when faced with the question of corruption in the top brass. “There are a few black sheep but the people must play a more pro-active role to ensure accountability and efficiency,” Zaman added. While Zaman attributed gradual restoration of peace in the state as a reason for good performance, his fellow candidates rued the lack of proper facilities in the state even now. Biswajeet Pegu (rank 116) and Padmapani Bora (rank 521) maintained that the course syllabi needed to be updated and change in the methodology of teaching was also a crying need of the hour. They also pointed out that collecting adequate study material for preparation for the civil services examinations was still a major problem here.However, the candidates refused to accept that vernacular medium education could be a hurdle for successful performance. “Many like me are from vernacular medium and that has never been a problem if one has the right determination and is ready to work hard,” Padmapani said. Echoing similar views, Siladitya Chetia (rank 152) maintained that while coaching classes helped in good results, it cannot actually make a good administrator unless the student has the qualities needed in him. Another successful candidate Pritam Dutta (rank 574) also stressed on the need for proper grooming right from school days for a student to clear competitive examinations rather than mere concentration on course books.
