While intense protests by students erupted in New Delhi over the CBSE exam paper leak, Congress president Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to once again attack the Narendra Modi government.

In his tweet, Gandhi took a dig at the PM’s ‘Exam Warriors’ initiative with a snapshot of the cover of the book released by the government on the same.

“PM wrote Exam Warriors, a book to teach students stress relief during exams,” he wrote.

“Next up: Exam Warriors 2, a book to teach students & parents stress relief, once their lives are destroyed due to leaked exam papers,” added Gandhi.

 

The government has come under fire over the handling of the CBSE exam leaks. Two papers – Class 10 mathematics and Class 12 economics – were leaked on social media on Wednesday just before the exams were set to begin.

Following the conclusion of the exams, the Board decided for retests in the two subjects affecting around 28 lakh students.

On Thursday, Gandhi posted two tweets aimed at the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. He claimed that the BJP-RSS have destroyed institutions such as the CBSE.

“The exam leaks destroy the hopes and futures of millions of students. The Congress always protected our institutions. This is what happens when institutions are destroyed by the RSS/BJP. Believe me when I say, this is only the beginning,” he wrote.

In a previous tweet, he had taken a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacking him over the series of “leaks” under his rule including the recent Karnataka election date scandal in which BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya had allegedly tweeted the dates before the official announcement by the Election Commission.

On Thursday, Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar fielded a barrage of questions from the media.

“I can assure you that the culprits behind the leak won’t be spared. The police are already on the job and just like it nabbed four people in the SSC scam, I am sure it will soon catch the culprits in this case, too,” he said.

“Besides, we have also constituted an internal inquiry to find out who leaked the papers,” the Minister told the reporters before he was charged with another volley of questions.

But the Minister’s assurance failed to alleviate the anger of the students who continued demonstrating in large numbers at the Jantar Mantar raising slogans against CBSE.

On Friday, some of the protesters tried climbing over the police barricades outside the office in Preet Vihar but were rebuffed.

Earlier on Wednesday, Delhi Police set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of its Crime Branch to probe the alleged leak. The SIT was formed after the Central Board of School Education (CBSE) registered two cases with the Crime Branch.
