Mangaluru: Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged a protest regarding the postponement of II-PUC chemistry board exams for the second time at the office of the Deputy Director of Pre-University Education near Car Street here, on March 31.
Speaking on the occasion, State Secretary of ABVP Rajesh Gurani said, “The state government and the PU Board are playing with the future of several students. Re-exams scheduled for today (31 march) have been postponed due to the leak of question papers.”
“The question papers were leaked in Tumkur and Bengaluru and this is all due to the negligence on the part of the PU Board. We demand to sack the director of the PU Board, Pallavi Akurathi. Though the question papers had leaked just a few days back, the government has failed to nab the culprits. It is quite shameful for such an incident to be repeated again,” he added.
He further said, “The Education Minister should have acted on the issue. Officers involved in the issue should have been sacked as well, but the government has failed miserably in taking any steps. This shows the lack of interest of the government towards students.”
“Strict action should be taken against the culprits and the Education Minister should submit his resignation,” he added.
