Udupi: There is security for the Chief Minister and his council of ministers but there is no security for PUC question papers said Seeraj Samaga of Vidyodaya PU College. He was speaking at a protest organized seeking the resignation of Education Minister Kimmane Rathnakar and Director of PU board for cancellation of Chemistry re-examination following the question paper leak. The protest was organized in-front of Clock Tower here on March 31.
Education Minister Kimmane Rathnakar and Director of PU Board should resign from the post for ruining the lives of the students. The re-examination for Chemistry was scheduled today on March 31 following a question paper leak earlier. Students had prepared for the examinations but the television channels early in the morning flashed news saying question papers were leaked and the re-examination scheduled for March 31 (today) was cancelled.
The PU board needs to answer the irregularities which have led to leak the question papers. The board should give marks to students rather than conducting re-examination. The mathematics paper contained questions which are not covered in the syllabus, but the board is silent on the same.
The entrance exams for engineering streams are nearing, for which we need to study, entrance examination or PU re-examinations, the board should specify. The offenders should be jailed rather than suspended, he added.
