CBSE Class 12 results fiasco: Parents call off hunger stir
Bhubaneswar: The Parents’ Association that has been sitting on an indefinite dharna protesting the discrepancies in the CBSE Class 12 results today called off their hunger strike; however, the protesting parents and students have said they will continue agitation till the issue is resolved.
The Parents’ Association members have stated that they would continue their stir until and unless their six-point charter of demands is fulfilled.
It may be mentioned here that students and parents from Chhattisgarh and West Bengal have also joined the protest of the Parents’ Association.
Meanwhile, a heated argument broke out between students and CBSE authorities as the latter refused to accept applications from the students for revaluation as directed by the High Court. However, the board authorities later accepted their application. Total 18 students, who had filed the petition at the High Court, had turned up at the CBSE office to apply for revaluation of answer sheets. The hundreds of protesting parents and students have also decided to jointly file a petition for revaluation at the High Court today.
Besides, though the High Court had ruled that students can apply for revaluation of answer sheets by paying a fee of Rs 800, the board asked the students to pay Rs 1000. As per latest information from the board officials, results of students who had applied for rechecking have come out and there have been no changes in the scores.
