AASU stages protest against SEBA, AHSEC

SILCHAR, March 8: All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Cachar district committee, today held a sit in protest demonstration before the office of the Deputy Commissioner with banners. They decried the functioning of both Secondary Board of Education, Assam (SEBA) and Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) for their callous and indifferent attitude towards the future of students and the conduct of examinations under their jurisdiction. They held the SEBA responsible for the burning of thousands of answer scripts and playing with the career of students. AHSEC was also their target for the way question papers of physics and biology were leaked out.
It is true as Ainul Haque Choudhury, president of the Union of the unit, said action has been initiated against some persons and a CID inquiry has also been ordered, but this is not the solution. The malaise in the system of conducting examinations has to be identified and remedial measures taken to ensure that such wayward approach by the authorities concerned is not repeated. It is also true that corrective measures have also been taken, but this is just a cosmetic action.
Students and their guardians have to undergo not only extreme mental tension but also the anxiety to think of the higher education of their wards. It is on the whole, Ainul Haque Choudhury pointed out, a set back to the students in their pursuit of education. Through this protest demonstration, AASU wants to send the message that in future conduct of examinations, not only the SEBA and the AHSEC have to be cautious, the education department of the state government has also to be alert. (source: SentinelAssam)
