Congress members in the Assembly on Thursday demanded a high-level probe into the leak of Physics question paper of ongoing Plus II examination alleging that it may have been pre-planned.
The issue was raised by Congress Chief Whip Prasad Harichandan who blamed the State Government for repeated leak of question papers including one such case last year during the HSC examination.
Demanding stringent action, Harichandan said 76,649 students appearing the Plus-II Science Examination have lost hope and demanded a statement from the minister while other Opposition members also demanded a clarification from the Government.
Alleging that question paper leaks are nothing new in the State, Harichandan said as newspaper reports suggested those were available in the market.
Criticising the Government for its failure in stopping question paper leaks despite repeated occurrence, Leader of the Opposition Bhupinder Singh said the authorities are yet to develop a system which can put a check on these things. His party colleague Debi Prasad Chand alleged that the Physics question paper leak was pre-planned. Some middlemen are always found to be involved in question paper leaks, he said and demanded a proper investigation into the matter. Naba Kishore Das (Cong) criticised the Government for not being able to conduct the Plus Two examinations in a disciplined manner.
Karendra Majhi (BJP) also criticised the Government for the question paper leak and demanded a statement from the Higher Education Minister in the House.
