Lucknow, March 30: After the strict warning from the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath against rampant cheating in the state, the incidents of the cheating were spotted in Bhola Shankar college in Mathura. The candidates in the board examinations were spotted cheating as they were assisted by their relatives. Even some persons were spotted climbing long walls of the examination centres.

After assuming the office of the Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath ordered the education department to take stern action against the cheaters in the Board examinations. The order prompted the Education department to issue helpline seeking the help of common people to report incidents of cheating in the state. The Complaint can be registered on WhatsApp number 9454457241. This apart, the complaint can be registered on the landline number 0522 2236760.

The gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma who also holds the education had conducted the surprise inspection.

In an earlier development, the English examinations at two examinations centres were cancelled in Mathura after the cases of cheating surfaced in the state. Reacting to the incidents of  mass cheating, Bharatiya Janta Party leader and Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy said,”This is matter of character. It should be seen that it does not repeat. No one should get the courage to do this in future. It is very unfortunate that the teachers and principals are encouraging such acts. People in our country look for shortcuts to get success, this is a result of that.”

Asserting that this matter is not just restricted to Uttar Pradesh, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said this has happened in the past too.
