A heated argument in the AP Assembly today on Thursday took place when the Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu offered a judicial inquiry into the alleged leakage of SSC examination paper (General Science-I) while the leader of the Opposition Jagan Mohan Reddy sought for a CBI inquiry.
Jagan Mohan Reddy stuck to his demand for a CBI probe and removal of Minister for Municipal Administration P.Narayana for the leakage that happed at his family owned Narayana Educational Institutions and his relative HRD Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao who failed to check it up.
Jagan charged the government shielding them and demanded that the examination be cancelled as the question paper on WhatsApp was circulated to places as far as Kadiri in Anantapur district.
Chandrababu Naidu termed it as ‘unfair practice’ and not ‘paper leakage’ quoting government rules. He read out the date right from 2004 onwards which such incidents had reported. He ruled out cancellation of the examination.
Reading out a statement of the events in the issue, Chandrababu challenged Jagan Reddy to come up with evidence. He should cooperate with the government in finding out the truth if he was to justify his claim that the passing of information by Saakshi TV to officials of the Education Department was an act of whistle-blowing or string operation.
Jagan Mohan Reddy expressed his readiness on behalf of his media house, Sakshi, to extend cooperation to the government in exposing the culprits.
