Hyderabad: State BJP president K Laxman criticised the State government for its inaction in correcting the shortcomings in the functioning of the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE).
In a press release here on Tuesday, Laxman demanded that the State government explain about the delay in announcing the Intermediate Public Examination (IPE)-2019 results.
He said that the IPE examinations were held around the same time in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. However, the AP had already announced the IPE results ahead of the TSBIE.
Expressing shock over assigning the technical services to an inexperienced company called Globarena, he asked the State government to come clean on this issue and disclose the details as to what is happening in the TSBIE.
The BJP leader said the lapses on the part of the TSBIE led to panic among students and parents. Though the pre and post examination services must be awarded to one or other company on the basis of it experience, the TSBIE had assigned the pre-examination services to Globarina resulting in a series of serious lapses taking place during payment of fee, admissions, generation of hall tickets and process of announcement of results, he said. The TSBIE officials are now seeking the help of the Centre for Good Governance at the eleventh hour, he said.
Similarly, the lapses in regard to the practical examinations are worrying students. Because marks in the practical examinations have to be updated on a daily basis through online mode.
However, "information doing rounds that practical marks of about 72,000 students were not uploaded is giving sleepless nights to the students and parents and this has to be clarified," he demanded.
Due to the negligence of the TSBIE officials, the number of answer papers received at the spot valuation centres at Adilabad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Nalgonda and Mahbubnagar were more than what the number of teachers attending the spot valuations duties.
This had forced the officials to transport the answer sheets to some other districts to get them evaluated. That apart mistakes in the SSC examination question papers had become a regular feature.
Adding, six marks for the mistakes in the mathematics paper 1 and 2 shows the sorry state of affairs of the entire Education Department in the State, he said.
Meanwhile, the TSBIE Secretary A Ashok, in a press statement on Tuesday, dismissed the fears about the misplacement or disappearance of the answer papers of the students.
He said those who wanted to physically verify their answer papers can do so after the declaration of the results by paying the prescribed fee.
He asked parents not to believe rumours doing rounds in the social media and other platforms trying to create fears among the parents and students.
