A delegation of All Bodo Students Union (ABSU) led by vice president Dipen Boro and education secretary Kastom Basumatary on Saturday called on the chairman of Board of Secondary Education Assam (SEBA) and submitted a memorandum urging him for taking necessary preventive measure in selection and printing of Bodo medium question papers for the ensuing HSLC examination, 2018, to ensure error free conduct of examination and to stop repeated mistakes done earlier in case of Bodo medium.
The vice president conveyed some vital points for prompt necessary steps for the benefit of the students’ fraternity and people as a whole.
Vice president Boro also said after creation of BTC in 2003 three more new districts had been created bifurcating the old districts – Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri with a view to give better administrative governance and speedy development of the region.
But it remains as a part of negligence and ignorance that there are no examination centre listed in all those three districts in the last one decade for all the competitive examinations conducted by the APSC.
As a result, students of the concerned districts situated in remote areas are facing critical days in attending all those examinations in the district headquarters.
He also said there should be new examination centre for Biswanath district which has been created newly.
Boro further added the union conveyed their gratitude to SEBA chairman for inclusion of Bodo language as one of the language papers for APSC civil service examination.
He also demanded that the Bodo language should be included in other competitive examinations where applicable in the lines of Assamese and English.
The ABSU urged the chairman of SEBA to take needful steps and to open examination centres for all the competitive examinations in the new district headquarters as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, the ABSU extended its gratitude to the State Coordinator of NRC – Prateek Hajela for the successful time bound publication of draft NRC.
The students’ union said the numerous typing mistakes had been appeared in name after publication of draft NRC needs immediate correction to make error free final NRC publication.
