AAPSU condemns CBSE leaks, ABVP demands ouster of officials

ITANAGAR, Mar Apr 2: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has strongly condemned the leak of CBSE question papers which forced the Board to cancel the examinations in two subjects.
Though the re-examinations do not include Arunachal Pradesh, the AAPSU stated in a press release on Monday that it is ‘shocked to learn of such developments in such renowned Board.’
The union urged the human resource development ministry to take stringent action against the people involved in the leaking of the question papers.
‘It (the leak) has totally shamed the Board and hampered the hopes and aspirations of thousands of students. The development has given the wrong message to the students across the country,’ the AAPSU said.
Meanwhile, the state unit of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged a protest near the CBSE examination centre here over the recent CBSE paper leak, demanding the removal of the CBSE chairman, nabbing of the chief culprit, and strict action against everyone involved in the leak.
ABVP state secretary Jakap Lukham said, “The paper leak of Class 12 (Economics) and Class 10 (Mathematics) has caused mental trauma to candidates, especially those who had dreams of appearing for various entrance examinations after the board examinations.”
He said this is not the first time that CBSE papers have been leaked.
Holding the CBSE authorities solely responsible for the incident, ABVP capital complex coordinator Tame Siang called on students and individuals to stand united and fight against such unlawful activities.
