We would have given books to examinees, Lalu on Bihar cheating
"Had it been my government we would have given books to examinees to write...only those who have read could write answers from books and for those who have not exam duration of three hours would end and they would still be searching for answers," Prasad said addressing a function after inaugurating a new school in an interior village of Buxar district on Sunday. Making fun of visuals showing parents climbing three to four storeyed building to supply chits to their wards, he had said on Sunday "it appeared as lizards are sticking on a wall."

"While parents were trying to sneak inside like a cat policemen have been shown sleeping," he said.
The RJD chief criticised state Education Minister P K Shahi for putting forth lame excuse that state government alone could not check cheating in examination.

Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi supported Prasad favouring open book system in examination.
"Open book system in examination is prevalent in prominent universities in America and elsewhere in the world. It has the logic that only student who has read the book could trace the answer," Sushil Modi told reporters.

He, however, said its (use of book in exam) is a separate issue and could not be linked with rampant cheating in ongoing matriculation exam which drew wrath of the Patna High Court too.

"While Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is trying to highlight glory of the state through function on the occasion of 'Bihar Divas', visuals of cheating in examination has piled shame on the state from across the world," Modi said.
