Preparatory meeting held ahead of Madhyamik examination
Kolkata: A preparatory meeting ahead of the Madhyamik examination was held at the state Secretariat (Nabanna) on Friday.
The top brass of the state government including Chief Secretary Malay De, senior police officers, senior officials of the School Education department and other concerned departments were present.
The Madhyamik examination will begin from Monday (March 12, 2018) and the state government is chalking out elaborate measures to ensure that students are not inconvenienced in any manner while heading towards their respective examination centres.
It may be recalled that while addressing the extended core committee meeting at Nazrul Mancha on Friday afternoon, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alerted all her party colleagues and workers to ensure that examinees do not face any trouble in continuing with their studies during the examination.
She also gave directions that loudspeakers during board exams should not be used and at the same time, urged all to ensure that rallies should only be held in a peaceful manner, without any arms.
It may be recalled that on February 26, the Chief Minister had directed all her Cabinet colleagues to keep a close watch on the situation in their respective districts. The ministers were also asked to do necessary supervision so that students do not get delayed in reaching their examination centres.
All such aspects have been discussed in the meeting held on Friday and a stock on the preparation in all the districts has also been taken.
Directions have also been given at the police station level to take necessary measures in ensuring that there is no illegal parking of vehicles along important thoroughfares. It has been often witnessed that illegal parking of vehicles leads to massive traffic congestion at various important intersections in the city.
At the same time, stress has also been given on transport facilities. There will be a sufficient number of buses on all routes to help examinees avail public transport without any delay.
The traffic police will also take necessary measures to avoid congestion mainly a couple of hours ahead of the scheduled time of the examination.
