“The allegations being levelled by some persons are intended to defame the government. In fact, representatives of all the media houses hailed the conduct of examinations. There was no scope for leakage of question papers,’’ he asserted. 

Earlier, taking to Twitter, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu citing reports of question paper leak, wondered how could the government propose to address the unemployment problem using such methods.
