BJP says no role in setting questions for Manipur board exams

By The Assam Tribune

IMPHAL, Feb 24 - A day after the Congress criticised some questions in the political science paper of the class 12 state board examinations in Manipur for trying to �instil certain kind of political mindset� among students, the BJP on Monday said it had no role in it and the authorities concerned should be asked about it.

Two questions, carrying four marks each, asked the students to draw the election symbol of the BJP and examine four negative traits of Jawaharlal Nehru�s approach to nation-building.

Congress leader Kh Joykishan had said on Sunday that the question paper for the examination on February 22 was an attempt to �instil certain kind of political mindset� among the students. The questions had gone viral on social media, drawing flak from netizens.

BJP spokesperson Chongtham Bijoy told PTI, �We do not have anything to do with the setting of questions. The authorities concerned frame the questions and they should be asked about it.�

Council of Higher Secondary Education (Schools) chairman L Mahendra Singh said, �The questions were set by the controller of examination from the chapter on �Party System in India� which is part of the political science syllabus of the board.� � PTI
