Rahul's remark is an apparent reference to PM Modi, who had described himself as the country's 'chowkidar' in one of his speeches during the campaign for 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
The CBSE on Wednesday announced re-tests of the Class 10 Mathematics and Class 12 Economics exams following reports that the papers were leaked.
HRD minister Javadekar said the government was conducting an internal inquiry into reports claiming that the CBSE Class 10 mathematics and Class 12 economics papers had been leaked.
A new system would be put in place from Monday to ensure no leaks take place and the government would ensure that there is no injustice, Javadekar said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed his unhappiness over the leak of the exam papers on WhatsApp and asked the human resource development ministry to take strict action.
