Cancel Class X exam in AP; promote students on internal assessment basis: TDP

Amaravati: Criticising YSRCP government for stubborn attitude, former Minister and TDP leader Alapati Rajendra Prasad on Thursday demanded that the cancellation of the Class X examination to save the lives of the students.

He said pass certificates should be issued to students based on the internal evaluation.

In a statement here, the TDP leader said that their party appealed many times for the cancellation of the 10th exam. However, the government postponed the exams after their party MLC Nara Lokesh launched an agitation.

Rajendra Prasad said the main objective of Lokesh's agitation was to save the lives of the students, parents, teachers, and non-teaching staff. "The government, which was adamant on conducting exams from June 7, had to step back and change its decision following TDP protests. The government's unilateral actions have always boomeranged on it and the YSRCP leaders should at least observe self-restraint from now onwards," he said.

Rajendra Prasad pointed out that class 10 exams were canceled by the CBSE, ICSE, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Orissa, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Himachal Pradesh. Exams were postponed by Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, West Bengal, and Assam. But still, the Jagan Reddy regime in Andhra Pradesh had blindly decided to go ahead with the exams from June 7.

The TDP leader said that the present rulers had finally withdrawn their unilateral decision considering the rising objections from the students and their parents. The government was also shaken by the ongoing hearings in the High Court on the petitions against the exams.

Meanwhile, the opposition leader advised Minister Adimulapu Suresh not to adopt an adamant attitude just to please the ego of the Chief Minister. The education minister should be conscious of the fact that he was dealing with the lives of the budding citizens of the country. There would be nothing wrong to listen to the suggestions given by Lokesh in the interests of one and all, he said.
