Taking a swipe at the ruling TMC, West Bengal Opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari has alleged that the West Bengal Civil Service (WBCS) exam paper "advertised" a pet scheme of the government.

The West Bengal Civil Service (Prelims) 2021 exam was held on August 22.

"Hell broke loose when UPSC exam paper featured question on WB post poll violence. Now that WBCS exam paper advertises WB Govt pet scheme, let's see how pseudo intellectuals would twist the narrative," Suvendu Adhikari tweeted.

The remark comes days after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) asked questions "given by the BJP" for a CAPF (Central Armed Police Forces) examination.

The CAPF exam paper had listed questions related to "poll violence in West Bengal" and farmers' protest against three farm laws. The candidates were asked to write a 200-word essay on "poll violence in West Bengal".

Addressing a press conference at the state secretariat last week, Mamata Banerjee said, "The UPSC is asking BJP's questions. UPSC used to be an impartial body, but the BJP is giving it questions. Even the question in a UPSC paper on the protest by farmers was politically motivated."
