Raj Thackeray appeals to students, parents to boycott re-exam

Holding the Centre responsible for the leak of CBSE examination papers, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray on Friday called upon students and parents to boycott the re-examinations.

"I appeal to all the parents that under no circumstances let your children sit for a re-exam. If you bend and adjust now and the govt gets to know of it, you will be made to bend more in the future," said Thackeray, the nephew of late Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray.

"The government is incapable of safeguarding the question papers and yet it is the students who have to bear the anguish of a re-exam. Why should they (students) be made to undergo this ordeal for no fault of theirs?," he said after a delegation of parents and students called on him at his Shivaji Park-Dadar residence.

Saying that the MNS was with them, he said, "You all please take a stand and be firm on it. Let the government take their decisions."

Blaming the Centre, Thackeray said, "The exam papers of the CBSE were leaked prior to the exams. This is basically the complete oversight on behalf of the government. Instead of owning up to their mistake, the govt is again burdening the students with a re-exam."
