‘Question paper leak’

Edu minister should resign or be removed

Demands JP MP Bablu in JS
Staff Reporter

Jatiya Party (JP) lawmaker Zia Uddin Ahmed Bablu yesterday, in parliament, called for the resignation of Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid, or his removal, over the allegations of question paper leaks of the ongoing Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations and also for his recent remarks ‘encouraging’ government officials to take bribe. “The education minister should either resign or be removed from his post,” demanded Zia Uddin Bablu, also a presidium member of JP, during his speech in parliament yesterday.

Venting his anger over the allegations of question paper leaks of the ongoing SSC exams, Bablu pointed out that despite the education ministry announcing a bounty of Tk 5 lakh for information on any question paper leak, the incident appears to be continuing as some people in facebook openly claimed to sell SSC question papers.

 “The education ministry on Sunday announced Tk 5 lakh bounty for information on those involved in question paper leaks. But, the next day, a facebook user bearing the name ‘Tushar Shuvro’ was found asking huge sum of money for SSC question papers. So why are these happening openly?” asked the Jatiya Party MP. Bablu also blasted Nahid for, what he called, encouraging government official towards bribery.

“How can he (the education minister) remain a minister after encouraging others towards bribery?” the JP MP asked said. Deputy Speaker Fazle Rabbi Mia, who was chairing the session, then said, “The prime minister will do whatever she thinks is best in the interest of the nation.”

Allegations have been made by many quarters that questions of all three SSC exams held so far (Bangla paper I, II and English I) were leaked since the exams began last Thursday. Various samples of leaked question papers surfaced in social media hours before these examinations.
