Aditya Thackeray, son of Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray has sought the resignation of Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde and Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University over the unprecedented delay in exam results.
“The Education Minister, Vinod Tawde, and the Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University, Dr. Sanjay Deshmukh are very comfortable with their job security despite an embarrassing 111 days of not declaring the results of the exams. Per law, this is required within 45 days of examinations,” Aditya Thackrey said in an article published on NDTV website.
Aditya, the chairman of Shiv Sena, an ally of ruling BJP in Maharashtra alleged govt for not listening to students which are facing a threat to their career.
“What happens to all those students who have applied abroad? What happens to all those students wanting to sign up for Post-Graduation courses in India?” he asked in the article.
“The current crisis in the education sector in Maharashtra is unprecedented. The crisis isn't only the problems faced by students and teachers in the university; the bigger catastrophe is that it seems the government is totally comfortable with students not being heard,” his article added.
Aditya said the delay in exam results is no more an embarrassment but a full-blown crisis and to save the government from this Tawde and Sanjay Deshmukh must resign.
“Now this isn't an embarrassment anymore, this is a full-blown crisis. The Cabinet Minister and the Vice Chancellor must go, their mark sheets say "fail," the article added.
