Government should ascertain whether SSLC exam are conducted safely: Siddaramiah

Government should ascertain whether SSLC exam are conducted safely: Siddaramiah

Bengaluru, July 4 (UNI) Leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah on Saturday suggested that the Karnataka government ascertain whether the recently concluded class 10 exam was conducted safely by checking the primary contacts of patients testing positive for COVID-19, between June 15 to July 20.

In a tweeter he expressing hope that everybody was safe, the former Chief Minister said, we will have to wait for 15 days to know the exact outcome.



Chief minister BS Yeddiyurappa seems to be motivated and overconfident to conduct more exams after ‘assuming’ that SSLC exams were conducted safely, he said, adding, "I too hope that everybody is safe."

But we will have to wait for 15 days to know the exact outcome,’ Siddaramaiah said.

"My strong suggestion to the govt is to collect data from all COVID-19 positive patients reporting between June 15 to July 20 to check if any of their primary contacts wrote SSLC exams. This will help the govt to evaluate if at all exams can be conducted safely,’" he said in another tweet.

The exam that began on June 25 concluded on Friday, amid a spike in Covid-19 cases, in which about 102 students could not appear due to reasons associated with the pandemic.
