Samajwadi Party on Tuesday pledged support to the students protesting against Civil services aptitude test (CSAT) issue and threatened to disrupt the proceedings of the parliament till CSAT is scraped off entirely from the civil services examination.

Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Naresh Agarwal told ANI, "We will give notice to the parliament regarding this issue and we will not let the parliament function until CSAT is scraped off entirely from the IAS examination."

He also added that preference must be given to Hindi and regional languages.

Earlier, in a bid to resolve the CSAT row, the government took a decision that the marks of English section will not be included for merit. This decision did not appease the protesting students completely as they want the CSAT to be scrapped entirely.
