Partha Chatterjee’s statement
Asked regarding reports of purported images of history question paper being shared on WhatsApp on Friday, the third day of the 10th class board examinations, The Education Minister said, I have kept a tab on the exam process today. There has been no incident of any question paper leaked on social media such as WhatsApp before the examination. He said that the examination passed off easily like the two previous days and cell phones were not allowed inside examination halls. Partha Chatterjee denied any paper leaks on the first two days of exam. If someone clicks a photo half an hour later writing the paper, can that be termed as question paper leak? Question leak happens when it comes out ere the commencement of the exam, he told PTI on Wednesday.
Steps were taken by WBBSE
Chatterjee said some people were trying to insult the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education that manages Madhyamik examinations. The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education has filed a complaint at the Bidhannagar Police Cyber Crime Cell against unknown people for sharing images of Bengali paper managed on February 12, 2019. WB board president Kalyanmoy Ganguly told PTI. On Friday’s conflict, Ganguly said, If anyone has received any such image, please share the sender’s contact number with us. A total of 10,66,000 candidates are appearing in the 10th class school leaving examination.
Chatterjee said I have continuously been in touch with superintendents police and district magistrates of during the day. There is no question leak. These are rumours being spread carefully.
