Of late, a certain video has been doing rounds wherein Delhi’s Directorate of Education Udit Rai is reportedly asking students to “fill answer sheets with anything” rather than leaving answer sheets blank in exams.
It was during the Director’s interaction with the 12th standard students when he mentioned that CBSE has been asked to give students marks as long as they write something in their answer sheets. “If you don’t know the answers, write anything. Copy the questions in the answer slots but don’t leave the answer sheets blank. We have talked to your teachers and they have said that they will mark you provided something is written in the answer sheets. We have also told the CBSE that if a child writes something, they should be marked,” Udit Rai was quoted saying.
This was followed by a lot of Congress and BJP leaders lashing against the Delhi government. But neither Udit Rai and nor any of the CBSE officials have remarked on Rai’s viral speech.
