However, the continuous paper leak in the state has brought severe criticism from the opposition with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state President Bandi Sanjay demining Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy's resignation.
Reacting strongly to the reports of the question paper leak of Telugu subject in Class 10 examinations, Sanjay, in a statement, charged the Telangana government of failing to conduct even Class 10 examinations in a fool-proof manner without giving scope for any leakage of question papers.
Holding the K Chandrasekhar Rao government responsible for the question paper leak, he said it was unfortunate that such leakage of question papers had become routine during the KCR regime.
"It is shameful on the part of the KCR government to continue despite the fact that it cannot conduct even Class 10 examinations properly, which proved to be a curse for the students," he said.
