Bengaluru, July 12: The Karnataka SSLC exam 2021 will go ahead now as scheduled on July 19 and 22, following the SOPs to prevent Covid-19, as the Karnataka High Court dismissed the plea demanding a cancellation of the Class 10 board exams in the state.

It was noted that unlike the Karnataka Second PUC or Class 12 exams, there wasn’t any data to evaluate the Karnataka Class 10 students. The Karnataka Class 12 board exams have been cancelled in the state and the students have been evaluated based on their marks in Class 10 and First PUC or Class 11.

Exam to be MCQ-based

Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar while announcing the decision to go ahead with the Class 10 board exam said that multi-choice objective type questions would be asked in the Secondary School Leaving Certification exam scheduled for July 19 and July 22.

The Karnataka Class 10 exam will be held in just two days from 10:20 am to 1:30 pm.

The core subject exams such as mathematics, Social Science and Science will be held on July 19 and the language subject exams will take place on July 22, the minister told reporters.

A sample paper has been uploaded on the official website and it would also be sent to all schools so students can be prepared on how best to write the exam.

Kumar said the SSLC exams were necessary for students to select their stream.

He said that while last year 8.46 lakh students had appeared for the Karnataka SSLC exam, 8,76,581 students will write it this year.

The state education minister said that the SOPs from the health department has been sent to the deputy commissioners, chief executive officers, senior police officers and treasury officers to hold the Class 10 board exam.

Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC will be in place around 200 metres from the exam hall, the minister said.

The plea 

A petition to dismiss the Karnataka Class 10 board exams filed by SV Singre Gowda said that students had difficulties in understanding the subjects due to the online.

Moreover, several institutions, especially those in rural areas might have not conducted online classes.

The petition had also said that since Karnataka Class 12 students had been evaluated on the basis of the marks in the previous two classes, the same method could be adopted for the Karnataka SSLC exam 2021 students.

Srinagar, Sept 4: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said the Centre's claim that people of Jammu and Kashmir now enjoy equal rights is a "barefaced lie" and the ease with which it imposes a "complete siege" in the valley every time it anticipates a reaction is distressing and deeply insensitive.

Her remarks come after authorities snapped mobile telephone services, except on BSNL's postpaid, and internet services, except on BSNL's Broadband and Fiber, on Wednesday night immediately after the death of hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

"GOI's dubious claims that people of J&K now enjoy equal rights is a barefaced lie as truth is that even their basic human rights dead or alive are suspended with pervasive impunity (sic)," Mehbooba said on Twitter.

The former chief minister of the erstwhile state said the ease with which the Government of India imposes a "complete siege", including communications blackout, in Kashmir every time it anticipates a reaction from people is distressing and deeply insensitive.

"Their misadventure of creating fear and suppression to eliminate a sentiment is counter productive since feelings and emotions don't dissipate or vanish into thin air. These feelings of betrayal, subjugation and anger are absorbed and passed on from one generation to the next," she tweeted.

The PDP chief claimed that instead of reaching out, every successive policy is undertaken to humiliate and collectively punish Jammu and Kashmir.

"These punitive actions compound this sense of betrayal and rage," she added.

Mangaluru, Sept 13: Former minister and incumbent Mangalore MLA U T Khader alleged that food, immunity and safety kits being distributed to construction labourers through the labour department by the government were being misused.

"There is a need to conduct a thorough investigation into the alleged misuse of kits," he demanded while addressing media persons at Circuit house on Sunday. 

"The rice, which was part of the food kit, had worms. The other two kits were not much beneficial. According to the available information, the government had spent Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,000 per kit. Fund from Karnataka Building and Other Construction Workers' Welfare Board was misappropriated," he charged.

"The cost per immunity kit was Rs 700. An amount of Rs 600 was spent on each safety kit containing sanitiser, soap, masks and others," Khader said. In the Mangalore constituency, only 5,000 such kits were distributed. While in other constituencies, 10,000 to 15,000 such kits had been distributed. Crores of rupees have been misappropriated in the name of kits for labourers," he alleged.

Khader said that fishermen are not getting subsidies for diesel on time. "I will raise the issue of Udupi-Konaje health corridor, metro rail survey and other issues in the session."

Khader claimed that no houses for the poor had been sanctioned in Karnataka after the BJP government came to power. The MLA said that the government had directed to conduct the survey of the homeless before the election. 

"But, the poor are still waiting for a roof over their head. The issue of housing projects will also be raised in the session," he added.
