Yet another minister from the ruling communist government has been exposed for his alleged intervention in passing a student who failed in B Tech examination. However, the minister surprisingly gave an explanation that the act was on ‘humanitarian ground, reports media. Minister for Higher Education K T Jaleel is the humanitarian who couldn’t bear the pain of a student who lost a paper during the examination!
As per reports, student of a Muslim College of Engineering in Kollam had earned only 29 marks for the paper Dynamic Engineering in the 6th semester. While the minimum mark to pass the exam was 45, the student couldn’t reach the number, the same repeated after revaluation of the paper too. Not satisfied with the first revaluation, the student once again filed an application for revaluation which the university rejected.
The ‘heartbroken’ Minister for Higher education intervening in the issue accepted a petition considering it as a ‘special case’ and appointed two ‘special’ teachers who were asked to ‘revaluate’ the paper in a week. The special committee, probably ‘on humanitarian ground’ gave 48 marks for the student who passed. The media has managed to gather documents showing the appointment of a special committee to reevaluate the answer sheet of the student under special recommendation.
This is not first of its kind of interventions by the ruling communist party that is notorious for its ‘interventions’ to go to any extend to protect and flourish their kith and kin. The incident has evoked massive rage from the public.
