Bhopal, Sep 24 (PTI) Gazed by the second position in the prestigious Civil Services Examination, 2020, Jagriti Awasthi of Bhopal said on Friday that 'I have a desire to contribute something good in rural development'.
Shubham Kumar has topped the prestigious Civil Services Examination, 2020, while Jagriti Awasthi has secured the second position. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) released the results of the examination on Friday.
Shortly after the results came, Awasthi told 'Bhasha', "After doing B.Tech from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal, I did an engineering job in Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Bhopal from year 2017 to year 2019. But since childhood I had a dream to become a collector and a desire to work in the social sector.
That is why even after getting the job of an engineer, I started preparing for the Administrative Services Examination. When I could not get selected in this exam in the first attempt, then I felt that I should leave the job of engineer and prepare.
Awasthi said, “After this I left the job of BHEL in the year 2019 and started working harder for this exam. During this there was an epidemic of coronavirus, which gave more time to prepare itself and was successful in the second attempt itself.
Giving the mantra of success to the students, he said, "Keep working hard. Have faith in yourself. Success will surely come."
Awasthi said, “After clearing this exam, now my dream of working in the social sector will be fulfilled. I wish to make some good contributions to rural development."

Excited about his success in the second attempt, IIT Delhi graduate Arth Jain said, "I will try to give my best for the development of the country."
