New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra trained guns at the education Boards of the country, including the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), for their decision to go ahead with the exams despite a surge in COVID-19 cases.
“It is downright irresponsible of boards like the CBSE to force students to sit for exams under the prevailing circumstances. Board exams should either be cancelled, rescheduled or arranged in a manner that does not require the physical presence of children at crowded exam centres,” Priyanka said via a tweet on Friday.
The Congress general secretary’s reaction came a day after both the CBSE and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) decided to conduct the board exams citing adequate safety arrangements.
The two boards’ response came after the hashtag, “cancel board exams” trended on Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday.
