Patna: Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) leader and MP Pappu Yadav, who has been trying very hard to be the voice of students in Bihar, on Thursday led a protest rally under the banner of Justice TET Association demanding improvement in education in Bihar where, he said, the government had completely destroyed the academic environment that the state once enjoyed.

"Education has collapsed under this government and previous governments in Bihar. Exams have become a laughing matter and corruption-laden education and examination boards continue to ignore the cancer that affects millions of students each year," Yadav said.

Taking a dig at the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB), the JAP leader said that because of its incompetence and sheer negligence, each exam and its result ends up being controversial.

"The anger and protest of the students is the result of the massive irregularities in the BTET," he said.

The rally that began from Patna Arts and Craft College culminated at the BSEB office where protestors demanded resignation of the state Education Minister and pressed for their other demands.

The former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader slammed the examination board saying it was being run by those who had zero understanding of the subjects being taught in the schools and possessed no knowledge about the syllabus being used in different schools.

"These people not only set wrong question papers, they also issue wrong answer sheets. Due to their utter ineptitude, students end up paying heavy price for their future. And when they protest about these failed officials, police try to silence their frustration by showering batons on them," Yadav said.

The MP from Madhepura asked the Chief Minister to destroy education mafia that, he said, was responsible for the collapse of education in Bihar.
