Kolkata:  Opposition parties today criticized the West Bengal government for deferring the primary Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) due to missing question papers and accused the ruling TMC of being involved in corruption.

The Opposition parties also demanded resignation of state Education minister Partha Chatterjee.
     
"Earlier too there has been corruption in the TET exam. This time question papers have gone missing, which clearly proves there is corruption regarding the recruitment. This TET scam is much bigger than the Vyapam scam. We demand immediate resignation of the state Education minister as he has been a total failure," state Congress president Adhir Chowdhury said.
      
The Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly and CPI(M) state secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra said the issue of question papers going missing itself proved there has been corruption, where questions papers were being sold.

"We are saying question papers are being sold. It had happened earlier also. This state government is knee deep in corruption. Those who are deserving won't get the job, rather those who have taken corrupt means will get jobs and that is why such corruption is taking place. The ruling TMC is involved in this corruption," Mr Mishra alleged.

More than 23 lakh aspirant have enrolled their names for the examination.

The West Bengal Government has deferred the TET examination from August 30 to October 4.

The decision was taken after two bags of question papers went missing from a Hooghly bound bus.
