Bhubaneswar, May 31 (IANS) Agitation over discrepancies in the CBSE Class 12 results in Odisha intensified even as two officials deputed by the Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar arrived here on Wednesday to look into the goof up.
While aggrieved students and their parents continued to protest in front of the CBSE regional office here, the members of Biju Chhatra Janata Dal (BCJD) and National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) staged protest demanding action against the officials for the discrepancies.
BCJD members tried to forcibly enter into the CBSE office along with parents of the Class 12 students protesting outside the office since the last three days. However, police stopped the agitators.
NSUI members burnt the effigy of HRD Minister blaming him for playing with the future of the students.
“The central government is responsible for the goof up in the results. The officials should be held accountable for playing with the future of the students,” said state NSUI president Itish Pradhan.
Meanwhile, CBSE Bhubaneswar Zone assistant secretary Jagabandhu Pradhan said the issue will be resolved in 15 days. He said the students would be provided with copy of answer sheets so that they can ascertain their actual marks in the examination.
Following the direction of Javadekar, CBSE controller of examination K.K. Choudhary and deputy secretary D.K. Goyal arrived here to discuss the issue of discrepancy in results with the officials here.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday wrote to the Union HRD Minister to personally intervene in the matter and address the discrepancies in CBSE 12 Board results on an urgent basis.
Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had also requested the HRD Minister in this regard.
