Udupi, Feb 18: To mark its eighth anniversary, the members of Popular Front of India organized a a public meeting and took out a procession titled 'Unity march' from the Old Taluk Office to the Royal Garden grounds in Udupi on Monday.

Speaking after inaugurating the event, K M Sharif, president of national unit of Popular Front of India (PFI), said that there should be equitable distribution of resources in the country.

Mr Sharif said that inequitable distribution of resources was responsible for the social imbalance in the country. The economic policies of the country had always favoured the capitalists. Despite the rule of all kinds of governments professing left, right and centrist ideologies, at the Centre, the plight of the Dalits, minorities and tribal people had not improved, he said.

Rightwing groups such as the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had encouraged communalism since 1980s. The Rath Yatra of the senior BJP leader L K Advani in 1990 was aimed at polarisation of communities to reap electoral benefits. This later led to the demolition of the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya in 1992. The PFI was against the agenda of the Sangh Parivar, M. Sharif said.

He said all the patriotic Indians should join PFI's struggle for social justice and equality.

“Popular Front was formed at a time when communalism tried to hijack Indian democracy and posed existential threat to country 'minorities. Even after 50 years of independence we failed to eliminate poverty and social injustice. Country backward classes and minorities were kept way from centres of power. Majority of the citizens are still below poverty line. Demands for justice were oppressed. Muslims, being a community that paid high price for our freedom, they still hold the capacity to lead the country out of situation. Popular Front thinks the day is relevant because the politicians and parties have long forgotten their allegiance to the country or its people. Our sovereignty has been submitted before colonialists and economy is being controlled by a tiny ultra-rich minority. Popular Front Aims to create a society determined to re-establish the basic values freedom, justice and security and to work for the empowerment of marginalised backward classes,” he said.

Abubakar Saheb, former president of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), Mufti Mohammed Muazam, president of All India Imam Council, Deviprasad Shetty, president of district unit of Janata Dal (Secular), Jayan Malpe, president of district unit of Dalit Sangharsha Samiti (DSS), and others were present.

Bengaluru, June 17: With 72 more students receiving 625 out of 625 marks after re-evaluation and re-totalling, the number of students securing full marks in the SSLC examinations has increased to 217.

Last month, when the SSLC results were announced, 145 students sprang a surprise by scoring 625 out of 625. This number has increased by 72 after the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) released the revaluation results.

The Board has decided to initiate disciplinary action against teachers who evaluated the answer scripts.

KSEEB director Gopalakrishna H N said: “We are gathering information on the teachers who evaluated these answer scripts and the same will be forwarded to the deputy directors of respective districts for further action.”

According to the Board’s norms, such teachers will be penalised and also blacklisted from the list of eligible evaluators. “The action will depend on the reply they give to the notice they will be issued,” said another official of the Board.

Meanwhile, the Board is initiating measures to refund the revaluation fee to students. “If the difference in marks is six and above we will refund the revaluation fees. But in case the marks difference is below six, then the revised marks will be added to the marks card, but no refund will be initiated,” the KSEEB director explained.

The huge number of students notching up perfect top scores became a subject of discussion on various platforms. This is the first time since the inception of KSEEB that 217 students have scored full marks in all the subjects to emerge as toppers. 

The number of students achieving the perfect score was never more than 10 all these years. In 2020, six students scored a cent per cent. Also, the number of students securing second place has been jumped from 11 in 2020 to 309 this year with a total score of 624. A total of 472 students share the third place with 623 marks.
