Cong leader Poojary wants Ratnakar quit

In the wake of PU Chemistry question paper leaking for second time, Primary Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar should immediately tender his resignation, demanded former union minister B Janardhan Poojary.

Addressing mediapersons here on Thursday, he said in case Ratnakar doesn’t tender his resignation, then Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should drop him from the Cabinet.

“Only then the students and their parents may get some relief and the image of the party might not damage,” he opined.

Poojary also demanded the authorities concerned to file an FIR against the officials concerned, instead of placing them under suspension, as the offence committed by them is criminal in nature.

Regretting the fact that there is not much progress in the CID investigation into the Chemistry question paper leak even after 10 days, the former union minister said it is nothing but the failure of the administration.

‘Black Day’

In a separate press meet, former minister Krishna J Palemar also demanded the resignation of Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar, owing moral responsibility.

Stating that March 31 is a ‘black day’ for students of the State, Palemar regretted that the question paper has leaked for the second time.

Taking a dig at the State government, the former minister said that the government has presented “Leak Bhagya” for PU students.
