Graduates Constituency MLC Satyajeet Tambe Congratulates UPSC Toppers, Lauds Women Power
May 2023 Nashik MLC Satyajeet Tambe lauded women students as they emerged in the first four rankers (All India) of the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations. Tambe said the result is a reassuring and hopeful picture of women’s empowerment and their progress in society.
“UPSC is widely considered the second-most difficult exam in the world. And students who clear them end up running the country’s administration directly through services,” Tambe said, adding “Congratulations to Ishita Kishore, Garima Lohia, Uma Hariti N, and Smriti Mishra for securing the first four places. This is women’s true power. I am sure women will use their intelligence and administrative prowess to constructively empower women further.”
Tambe added that while sadly women are still deprived of basic amenities and often looked down on as neglected classes, securing the first four spots of the examinations is comforting news for the whole of India and its womenfolk.
Tambe also congratulated Kashmira Sankhe, who secured the first rank in Maharashtra and AIR 25, and other Maharashtra toppers. Recounting his tenure as the Maharashtra Youth Congress President, Tambe said, “I had almost 700 office bearers in Maharashtra under my leadership. Out of them, only five were women. There was a huge disparity and it was depressing. I am glad that I was able to take the number of women up to 33%. The most significant aspect of it is to create an environment that is safe and secure for them.”
Tambe also motivated the students that could not make it this year. He said, “They should start preparing again with a clean slate; without getting depressed or discouraged. That would only lead to a lack of focus which would not be helpful for their next go at the exams. Remain calm, composed, and concentrate on your goals and you shall find success for sure”
Moreover, Tambe also praised students from his hometown Sangamner who cleared the exams. Mangesh Khilare is just 23 years old and he went on to clear the UPSC. Khilare’s father owns a tea stall while his mother used to roll cigarettes. Other students included from Sangamner who also cleared the services exams were Rajshree Deshmukh and Swapnil Dongre.
