KOKRAJHAR, May 11: Former Rajya Sabha MP from Assam, Urkhao Gwra Brahma on Thursday said for the larger interest of today’s generation and tomorrow’s society, the present crisis sponsored by the government over the SEBA’s HSLC result should be ended with essential clarifications from all authorities concerned without further delay.
Brahma said that the ruthless manner in which the matter was presented in the assembly regarding how pass percentage had been enhanced from 22pc to 65 pc or more than that, just to show that the standard of education had improved, was really shocking. After this, the credibility and ability of thousands of students who had passed out during the period from 2001 to 2016 had been ridiculed and put under trial, he said, adding that the government should know this fact also that hundreds of students out of those have already excelled in medical, engineering, magement and higher education of technical and non-technical discipline with their talent and ability. He said their credibility of being excellent students cannot be questioned just like that by the government because their talent had secured them admission in excellent institutions. But one must agree with the fact that SEBA’s performance was not up-to the mark at the present and a great reform was needed, he said.
Brahma said it was the same education minister who had praised the SEBA for being the best body in the country in conducting examitions very recently. The same minister took the whole credit of increase of pass percentage in the HSLC during the Congress regime. “So why could not he find out about the magic result earlier? I am concerned that the revelation made in such an end to the present crisis, let all chief ministers, education ministers, SEBA chairmen and some related authorities of the past 15 years sit together in one studio, reply to the public with clarifications and justifications properly and bring to an end this ugly debate,” said Brahma.
He also said that Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal needed to intervene in the crisis to stop such a superfluous debate and initiate healthy process and if anything needed to be done with the SEBA, including necessary inquiry and action for all anomalies, then let it be the priority of the government but the future of the students should not be played with in such a ruthless way.
