Question leak: ACC chief backs up education minister
The Ministry of Education is not alone accountable for question papers leaking ahead of every test of the ongoing SSC and equivalent examinations, said Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Iqbal Mahmood. His remarks have come in support of the ministry and Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid at a time when criticisms from all over the country and social media are mounting over non-stop question leaks. Many, including opposition lawmakers, have already demanded the minister’s resignation. A Supreme Court lawyer yesterday also sent a legal notice to the president and the prime minister seeking his removal from the Cabinet within 24 hours for failing to stop the leaks during public examinations. ACC chief Iqbal, however, said the students and their parents were also responsible along with the education officers and ministry for the question leaks. “All of us, the parents and the public representatives, have to be aware. The Education Ministry only is not responsible for the leaks,” he said at an interaction with local officials and public representatives at the deputy commissioner’s office in Barisal on Wednesday. “You need to understand what to do in this situation. Where are we going actually?... Making speeches will not do any good. Now time has come for action,” said Iqbal. Since the SSC exams started on February 1, questions were available on social networking platforms, including Facebook and WhatsApp, ahead of all nine tests across the country. “Allegations against your office will come. But you have to stay alert, because you cannot stop corruption once it takes place,” the graft watchdog chief told his audience. He said taking measures before corruption happened was possible if everyone was cautious. “We are not here to provide you with solutions. The solutions to corruption are in your hands, not ours.”
