Sisodia writes to Javadekar, says need to move beyond party politics

NEW DELHI: Stressing the need to move beyond party politics on the CBSE paper leak issue, Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday asked HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to convene a meeting of all state education ministers to discuss ways to stop recurrence of such serious incidents.
The minister, in his letter, informed the Union Minister that while the two examinations, the class 10 mathematics and class 12 economic papers, have been cancelled and re-ordered, there are concerns about other possible leaks as well. He said if the examination papers are leaked, then undeserving students perform well and hard-working students are left behind, which means the country gets low-quality officials, teachers, doctors and engineers.
"So let us all put our minds together and think of solutions for the national good," he wrote in the letter. "I request you to immediately convene a day-long brain-storming session of all education ministers so that we can ensure that such serious incidents do not happen again. Not only does this affect the future of 26 lakh students, but also puts a question mark on the sanctity of the CBSE assessment system," Sisodia said on the paper leaks.
He said that this is an issue that needs to "move beyond party politics" because once an examination paper is leaked, the negative consequences are for the country and not one government or one party. "So let us put our minds together and think of solutions for the national good," Sisodia said. He also wrote, "This is an issue on which we need to move beyond party politics because every time an examination paper is leaked, be it CBSE, SSB or DSSSB the negative consequences are for the country, not just to any one government or one party."
