  1. Like aviation minister Mr. Puri, this education minister is one another hopeless minister in Midi’s team. Without any plan and preparation he is only talking nonsense in front of media. Can he explain how, where and when he will take final exams when there is no sign of lifting of total lockdown in near future, when corona cases are increasing leaps and bounds every day. How the students will reach at examination centres. All these bogus ministers are destroying Midi’s efforts by impractical and illogical statements before media.

  2. This should not be done i am not happy with the decisions even after knowing the current situation they are doing nothing for the students for there welfare atleast we should be given a one time opportunity as we have spend a lot of time in examinations and studies wat will happen if they pass the final year students in the basis of previous results this should not be done totally disappointed we are not in a good state of mind at all due to this covid19 breakdown…..
