THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In the wake of the High Court order in the Plus-Two issue, the Chief Minister and Education Minister should resign taking responsibility, demanded Opposition Leader V S Achuthanandan.

In a statement issued here on Monday, Achuthanandan alleged that sanctioning additional Plus-Two batches was one of the biggest corruptions the state had ever seen.

“The High Court verdict proves that the allegations raised by the Opposition in the Plus-Two issue, inside and outside the Assembly, were true. The Cabinet sub-committee sanctioned 104 schools that were not recommended by the Higher Secondary Director. Plus-Two batches sanctioned to certain schools, reportedly on MLAs’  recommendations, have also been cancelled by the High Court. It means that the sub-committee lied about the MLAs’ recommendations. The HC verdict has created a critical situation in the state,” VS said. He alleged that schools were sanctioned without following norms. The files submitted before the HC had no evidence of government following the guidelines while sanctioning the batches, he said and added that both the CM and Education Minister should resign and apologise to the public.
