Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) expressed deep concern over the decision to re-conduct the ongoing examinations of Class X Mathematics and Class XII Economics papers by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) due to leak of papers.
The APCC blamed the BJP-led government at the Centre for the question paper leak for which the students will now have to re-appear in the examinations of the papers already conducted by the CBSE.
The APCC hit out at the BJP government for “playing with the future” of the students, who are the torch-bearers of the country.
Standing in solidarity with the affected CBSE students, the APCC came down heavily at the BJP government for its poor administration and management skill. “BJP is experimenting and fostering an education system of profit oriented with inflated arrogance,” the APCC claimed.
Bringing the matter of SSC question paper leak recently, APCC spokesmen Mina Toko in a press communiqué stated, “Previously, it was SCC examination paper which was leaked keeping the future of approximately 2 crore applicants at stake.”
He also stated that the question paper leak and re-conduct of the examination of certain papers has almost ruined the academic hardship of 28 lakh students. “There is rot in the education system due to mismanagement by BJP government,” Toko added.
He also asserted, “The BJP is not only damaging the school education system but it is politically sheltering criminals in the highest educational institution in a university like JNU who sexually harass female students and continues to enjoy all the privileges with the backing of BJP-RSS-ABVP.”
The APCC spokesperson further claimed that the Narendra Modi-led BJP government has failed to work effectively in the field of education. “With the gigantic political interference, BJP has distorted the value and essence of Indian education system which once was praiseworthy,” he said.
He also added that increase in the fee structure in higher education when a large number of children remain outside the schools with the increase in dropout rates, poor performance of teachers and students lead to the increase of suicidal attempt of students.
“Hence, considering such pitiful state of Indian education system, APCC demands that the BJP government must immediately agree upon the demands of agitated students all over the country and initiate investigation into the Class X and XII paper leak,” the statement added.
