Bengal BJP Youth Wing Demands TET Inquiry

Our CorrespondentKolkata: The West Bengal unit of BJP Yuva Morcha, has demanded inquiry into the leaking of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) question papers. “We demand an inquiry by a High Court judge. If the investigation is proper, then the culprits will be known,” BJP state Yuva Morcha vice-president, Raju Banerjee, told reporters on the sidelines of a protest rally and road blockade on College Street today. The rally was lead by president Amitava Roy. Raju Banerjee alleged that the culprits were close to Trinamool Congress (TMC) MPs Kalyan Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee. TMC is involved with the question paper leak, he added.

The state BJP youth vice-president further alleged that the culprits have pocketed crores by promising jobs. “Who can say there will be no further leaks,” he asked. 

The West Bengal government had decided to defer the TET exam from 30 August to 4 October, supposed to be taken by 22 lakh candidates, after two sacks of question papers went missing. “The incident once again proves the shallowness of the ‘great change’ of 2011. We can recollect similar instances of several missing question papers and answer scripts of Madhyamik, Higher Secondary, and other exams during the Left rule. This once again proves our point that there has been no change in the governance here.” Roy said. He said that in order to turn around the shoddy work culture, proper administration and effective governance is required in the state and not permutations and combinations.
