New Delhi, Mar 30: BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar has urged Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar to scrap the CBSE’s plan to hold a re-examination of Maths paper of Class 10 and Economics paper of Class 12 after the papers were found to be leaked before the exams. He wrote on Twitter urging not to subject the students and their parents to re-exams and let the results stand.
The BJP MP further said that instead of cancelling the examination of all students, the students who had benefitted from the leaked papers must be identified and their papers should be cancelled.
“Dear @PrakashJavdekar – pls dont subject students n parents to re-exams. Let results stand. Instead investigate n identify those few that benefitted from leaked papers n cancel their results only! Thats the only correct thing to do now! ,” he wrote.
