BJD student wing gheraoes CBSE office, demands HRD Minister's resignation

Bhubaneswar: The student wing of the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD), on Thursday gheraoed the Bhubaneswar office of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and demanded resignation of Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister, Prakash Javadekar, opposing the decision of CBSE to conduct re-examination of Mathematics paper of Class 10 and Economics paper of Class 12.

The activists of the Biju Chhatra Janata Dal (BCJD) criticised the decision of CBSE to conduct re-examinations as the question papers of both the subjects were leaked 30 minutes before the commencement of the examinations.

They also said that re-examination of the papers should be conducted only in New Delhi as the leak was confined to the national capital only.

'We demand resignation of the concerned minister for his incompetency,' said BCJD president, Rana Pratap Patra.

Why is Prime Minister Narendra Modi silent at a time when the future of lakhs of students is at stake? He should take responsibility and answer, he added.

Guardians' association of Odisha also condemned the re-examination decision of the CBSE.
