Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday requested Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to call a meeting of all state education ministers to discuss the CBSE paper leaks and to ensure that such “serious” incidents do not recur.
Every time an examination paper is leaked – be it CBSE, SSB or DSSSB- the negative consequences are for the country and not just for any one government or one party, he said.
“Not only does it affect the future of 26 lakh students, but also puts a question mark on the sanctity of the CBSE assessment system – a system on which students, parents and schools from all over the country place their trust,” he said.
CBSE has announced a retest of the Class 10 mathematics and Class 12 economics papers after reports that they were leaked. Police are also investigating the matter.
