The education mafia has again destroyed millions of students’ careers, leaking Class 12th examination papers. The Yogi government has arrested seven more accused and they will be charged under NSA. Yet it’s time for the government to start a proactive war on this crime syndicate of the education mafia. Enough of reactive arrests, it’s time for a proactive war against the education mafia.
Yet another Paper Leaked by Education Mafia
The UP Inter English paper of Class 12th UP Board has been cancelled in 24 districts on the “suspicion of paper leak”. The exam schedule in the remaining districts continues as before while the re-exam in these 24 districts will take place on the 13th of April. With seven new accused arrested, the total tally reaches 24 including Ballia’s District Inspector of Schools (DIS) Brajesh Kumar Mishra and some journalists. The UP Government is strict on these culprits and they will be charged under the National Security Act(NSA).
The Special Task Force has been asked to probe the class 12 English language paper leak in several districts of #UttarPradesh.
The exam to be held on Wednesday at 2 p.m. and has now been cancelled.@Uppolice
The exam is being conducted after 2 years of severe corona pandemic and began on 24th March and around 51.92 lakh students are appearing for the board exams of High School and Inter this year. To avoid cheating and paper leaks the government placed 2.97 lakh CCTVs with the feed being monitored at the district level control rooms and deployment of adequate police protection for transferring and storing the examination papers. Yet the leaks at such a grand scale suggest the scale of organised planning of this crime syndicate and some internal hands involved.
Previous UPTET leak case and Stringent Action of Yogi government
The Education mafia played with the career of around 20 lakhs students in November last year as well when the UP Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) dated 28th November was cancelled before the exam commencement because of the paper doing rounds on social media. The case was transferred to the UP Special Task Force (STF) which arrested senior officials, a few exam solver gangs’ kingpins and around 30+ people involved in the case.
The arrest includes the State Examination Regulatory Authority’s Secretary Sanjay Upadhyay. The alleged mastermind of the paper leak case was also arrested, Vikas Pawar from Shamli. The UP CM Yogi Adityanath gave orders to take strict action against all the culprits involved in the case including charges under NSA and Gangster Act and their properties were also to be seized.
The Paper leak cases are happening across many states in India and the education mafia finds new ways to evade the authorities. Cheating, paper leaks, multimedia devices in exam halls and many other sophisticated software have not been completely eradicated by using the traditional reactive arrest strategy and are destroying the future of Indian youths.
The action after the paper leak cases in UP is exemplary but a lot has to be done proactively to stop this menace and save the precious time and energy of our students. The Yogi ‘Bulldozer against mafias’ model has created a major improvement in the law and order situation in the state and a new proactive model needs to be enacted to safeguard the interest of the students and India’s future.
