Agartala, June 16 (UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Tripura Legislative Assembly Ratan Lal Nath has accused the state government of breach of privilege and contempt of the Supreme Court's order with regard to the announcement of Higher Secondary results under Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE).
In a letter addressed to Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan, the Opposition leader stated that according to the Supreme Court's directions, the TBSE had to publish the detailed results within three months of conducting the examination.
However, the board declared the results of the top ten and percentage of successful candidates but did not provide the marksheet or subjectwise marks obtained by the candidates till June 15.
''Declaration of the results of a section of the candidates amounts to contempt of the apex court's order, as it clearly stated that the all the boards have to announce full details of each and every candidate within the stipulated period along with marksheets, which was not followed Tripura this year,'' Mr Nath said.
He, however, underlined that the TBSE had made serious mistakes in entire evaluation process and as a result, lot of confusions arised about the results while in some cases the online results websites could not provide the results accurately.
Mr Nath sought appropriate action against the TBSE authorities for contempt of court, alleging that it was the gross violation of the law of the land.
Meanwhile, accusing the state government of interfering in the administrative issues of the board, Mr Nath alleged that a group of ruling party cadres had been manipulating the results and the TBSE's activities, which led to large scale corruption and malpractices in the board.
''State Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty made commitment on June 10 that the detailed results, including marksheets, would be distributed by June 12 but the TBSE failed to comply with the minister's statement,'' Mr Nath said and demanded judicial enquiry into the result issue.
