Assam MLA and Raijor Dal chief Akhil Gogoi on March 17 said that the reports of paper leak of the Assamese language question paper of the High School Leaving Examination (HSLC) are a matter of deep shame.
This comes after the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) was advised to reschedule the exam by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma based on the testimony of an accused who was arrested for leaking the General Science question paper of the earlier taking the HSLC exam, which caused a huge uproar in the state.
Akhil Gogoi, an outspoken critic of the government took to Twitter and wrote, "It's a matter of deep shame that Assamese paper has been leaked. Is it truly a conspiracy to destroy the Assamese vernacular medium? @ranojpeguassam please resign".
"We learned that the General Science exam paper was leaked. Eventually, it was revealed that the mathematics paper had also been leaked. Moreover, it has just come to light that the Assamese paper was also leaked. The chief minister has advised rescheduling the paper in light of this", said Akhil Gogoi on Twitter.
Akhil Gogoi further stated that the entire HSLC paper leak incident just shows how carelessly the education department is handling the situation and playing with the student's future.
According to the available data, it is obvious that Ranoj Pegu, the education minister, should resign from his position due to his failure to control the situation, said Akhil Gogoi. The leak of Assamese paper is a matter of shame. Is it truly a conspiracy to destroy the Assamese vernacular medium? @ranojpeguassam," he tweeted.
On the other hand, opposition leader Debabrata Saikia alleged that the chief minister just makes speeches about change while BJP's ally in the state, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) MLA Ramendra Narayan Kalita termed the incident as a matter of great concern.
"It is really dangerous when a teacher turns into a criminal . The act goes against the nation and the accused should be punished," Saikia added.
