Rane further said, “How does this new arrangement solve the problem? The other canteen was always there. It is not easy for the employees of the examination department to walk all the way to the other canteen whenever they need something. What does the administration mean by basic services? And how will they be provided? The place dedicated for the canteen at the examination section has been taken up by the security office.”
