PM Modi expresses displeasure over CBSE paper leak
CBSE has played an unimaginable prank on Class 10th and 12th students by forcing them to re-appear for Maths and Economics exams respectively. The whole country is talking about this rather shocking turn and not even the Prime Minister is aloof from the whole hullabaloo. As per reports, after hearing the news, Modi dialed Prakash Javdekar, the minister for Human Resource development to take stock of the rather sticky situation. He expressed his displeasure on the fact that students would have to re-appear for the exams.
The whole fiasco started on Sunday when some students said they spotted a hand-written question paper doing the rounds on Whatsapp. After the exam, the students said that many questions were similar as seen in the leaked question paper. Admitting the farcical lapse, Javdekar who is in charge of the Human Resource Development ministry which handles education in the country, said that a special team of Delhi Police will investigate the complete matter. He said, “We are sure that whoever has done this will be caught soon. They have no right to play with the lives of children”.
Javdekar assured the agonized parents and students that the culprits will be caught soon. He also said that such failures will be prevented in the future with the use of technology. Pouring oil into the flames, Congress’ Randeep Surjewala quipped, “Aabki baar paper leak Sarkar”. In a tweet, Surjewala critiqued the current dispensation’s inability to conduct such important examinations in a fair manner.
Modi Govt should be renamed as #PaperLeakSarkar

The spate of paper-leak incidents is a jolt on the psychologies of lakhs of students who leave their future to the examination mechanism in the country. Such incidents are bound to shake their faith in the education system. The government should clean up its act before it’s too late.
