New Delhi: After facing criticism over the REET 2021 paper leak issue, the Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan government on Monday canceled the level 2 exam of Rajasthan Eligibility Test for Teachers (REET) 2021. While addressing a press, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said, “We will cancel the level 2 of REET exam 2021, we will conduct this exam again”.
The decision was made after protests took place all over the state as many students demanded a re-examination for REET 2021 due to the paper leak that occurred in September 2021 and the admit card controversy that was highlighted a few weeks ago. REET 2021 will be conducted once more, to ensure a fair process for all candidates involved.
The camp was organized for all the Congress MLAs and other legislative members supporting the government will brainstorm on burning issues, said the party.
The meeting was addressed by AICC general secretary Ajay Maken, Rajasthan PCC chief Govind Singh Dotasara and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot along with Congress and other MLAs supporting the party.
The Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teacher (REET) paper leak case of 2021 was also raised in the Lok Sabha on Thursday by RLP convenor and Nagaur MP Hanuman Beniwal, who demanded a CBI probe into the matter along with the cancellation of the exams.
Speaking at the Lower House, Beniwal said, “There should be a CBI inquiry into the REET cheating case. The youth of Rajasthan are agitating. Huge anomalies are being reported in the REET exams. We want REET 2021 to be cancelled and there should be a CBI inquiry into the rigging.”
Earlier, the Ashok Gehlot government on January 29 sacked the chairman of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education, Ajmer, D P Jaroli, in connection with the paper leak during the teachers’ recruitment exam (REET) in September.
