Patna: Despite global criticism and widespread mockery of the Bihar education on the social media in the aftermath of the fake toppers and the involvement of Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) in the whole scandal, a defiant Education Minister Ashok Kumar Chowdhary on Saturday in Patna praised the condition of education in Bihar saying a few bad apples were trying to give bad name to the state that has a glorious history of producing world-class graduates in various faculties.

The Congress leader who was speaking at the award ceremony of students and teachers organized by the Private School Association said that the Nitish government was committed to improve education in Bihar and that is why proper actions were taken against all those involved in the recent 'ToppersGate' in a matter of hours.

"Due to the mistakes of a handful of people, the students of Bihar have to pay the heavy price for it. That is why within 72 hours of the toppers scandal coming into light, the government took strict measures against all those who were found to be responsible for it," Chowdhary said at the Sri Krishna Memorial Hall adding a large chunk of the Bihar population was uneducated and efforts were being made to give them quality education so the state could join the 21st century.

On the occasion, four students of 10th and 12th class were given a cash award of Rs. 11,000 each for topping in their schools and an additional 3000 students were honored for security special place in the board exams.

Animal Husbandry Minister Awadhesh Singh, Land Reform and Revenue Minister Dr. Madan Mohan Jha and a number of senior bureaucrats, teachers and principals of private schools were present on the occasion.
