Patna,(BiharTimes): On the day Plus-II Arts topper Ganesh Kumar was arrested on the charge of fudging the date of birth Rashtriya Janata Dal, the main constituent of the Grand Alliance, on Friday sought action against the chairman of Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) Anand Kishor for the poor results this year.
Speaking to the mediapersons on Friday RJD spokesperson Ashok Singh said it is “a criminal offence” as more than eight lakh students have failed, which implies that eight lakh families are affected, which includes students who have cleared IIT-JEE Mains.
He said the Intermediate results are the gateway to the careers of students and the BSEB should be very careful in the publication of the results. At best, the BSEB chairman should resign from the post on his own and if he does not, the government should remove him because he is directly responsible.
However, the JD(U) defended Kishor, saying that no allegation or report had come out against the BSEB chairman.
RJD vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh wondered what the government had done to improve the quality of education.
He said he had been saying since the beginning that there are no teachers in the schools to teach the students. Then how does one expect them to pass the exams?
Raghuvansh said he had said long back “pehle padhai phir kadai” (first teaching, then strictness).
On the other hand JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar defended Kishor stating he did an excellent job by holding the exams in a fair manner.
He said the poor results are collective responsibility of everyone who matters and not any individual.
