THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala will stage an agitation in front of the Secretariat on Wednesday demanding a judicial probe into the controversies related to the SSLC and Plus-Two question paper irregularities.

Meanwhile, he also demanded the resignation of Education Minister C Raveendranath in the wake of the recent episodes. He handed over a letter to the Chief Minister on Tuesday demanding a judicial probe into the irregularities and also the removal of the minister.

Stating that wide-spread irregularities had come out with respect to the examinations, he said the government should hold a judicial inquiry before the valuation of the examination is held.

“The Education Minister has no moral right to continue in his office. He should immediately tender his resignation,” Chennithala said.  He said the minister had failed in his responsibility. It was not the minister who was taking decisions in his department. The Left-affiliated Kerala School Teachers Association was having an upper hand.

Though the SCERT had been entrusted with the preparation of the question paper, he said it was the teachers associated with the KSTA who had prepared the question papers.

K G Vasu, who headed the SCERT panel that prepared the mathematics question paper for SSLC, was a member of the KSTA who handled the column regarding mathematics in the association magazine, he said. 

Noting that the government had taken action against only one teacher with regard to the SSLC question paper, Chennithala said the government should have taken action against Vasu, who had headed the panel.
