New Delhi: In view of the increase in coronavirus cases, more than one lakh students of class 10th and 12th have signed petitions and urged the government to cancel the board examinations or get them online in May. Meanwhile, Congress Party National General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has targeted CBSE, calling her irresponsible.
Along with this, the board has demanded the cancellation or re-examination of the examination. Priyanka Gandhi tweeted on Friday, saying, “It is irresponsible for boards like CBSE to force students to appear for the exam in the present circumstances.” Board examinations should be canceled or rescheduled or arranged in such a way that there is no need for physical presence of children in crowded centers. ‘
In fact, the CBSE and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) said that adequate arrangements have been made for the safety of the students and that all the coronavirus guidelines will be followed during the examinations. A petition on ‘Change dot org’ states, ‘The situation in India is getting worse day by day. When there were few cases in the country, they canceled the rest of the board exams and now that the cases are at a peak, they are planning to open schools. We urge the Education Minister to consider the matter and cancel all the examinations this year as the students are already under a lot of stress. ‘
