Now amid the raging controversy on the CBSE paper leaks, Gandhi tweeted another scathing comment on the government and especially PM Modi.
When contacted, Tripathi said, "During the Congress party national conclave in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi tried to draw similarities between PM Modi, Nirav Modi (tainted diamond businessman) and Lalit Modi (former IPL commissioner)".
"The exam leaks destroy the hopes and futures of millions of students".
He wrote: "How many leaks?"
Yesterday, Gandhi had targeted Modi over the series of leaks, including CBSE board papers, to say that the "chowkidar" was weak.
The post comes a day after the CBSE announced a re-test of Class 10 board Maths exam and Class 12 board Economics paper, after reports of leak of the question papers. The SIT was formed after the Central Board of School Education (CBSE) registered two cases with the Crime Branch. The minister said he had spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and apprised him about the developments.
"I can assure you that the culprits behind the leak won't be spared".
Other Congress leaders such as Jyotiraditya Scindia and Kapil Sibal also hit out at the government over the paper leak case.
Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar said a new system would be put in place from Monday to ensure no leaks take place and that the government was conducting an internal inquiry. "The police are already on the job and just like it nabbed four people in the SSC scam, I am sure it will soon catch the culprits in this case, too", he said.
