Later, the parents said they will continue their protest even if they are jailed. The stir has intensified since there has been no outcome even though Parents Association had set a June 6 deadline for officials to rectify the discrepancies in results.
The results of several students in Odisha remain withheld without any reason after the CBSE class 12 board results were published on May 28 after which students and Parents Association launched a series of protests before the CBSE regional office.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had on May 30 sought intervention of Union HRD Minister Prakash Javdekar in the alleged discrepancies in the publication of CBSE class 12 results.
Two officials from CBSE, New Delhi had discussed the modalities with the officials here and had assured to resolve the issue in 15 days.
