Corona disaster: 13500 cases in 24 hours in Delhi, Kejriwal urges Center to cancel CBSE exams

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday requested the Center to cancel the upcoming CBSE Board Examination in view of the steady increase in the cases of corono virus in the country. Kejriwal said in a press conference on Tuesday that in the last 24 hours, a record 13,500 cases of Corona have been reported in the capital. He said that it is very much a matter, after some time this data will be released with complete data. He said that by conducting the examination, the virus can spread on a large scale.

Instead of the usual method of conducting board exams, CM Kejriwal suggested that students should be promoted on the basis of online examination or internal assessment. He said, “Students can be promoted on the basis of online examination or internal assessment. But the CBSE examination should be canceled.

According to the Chief Minister of Delhi, about six lakh students will sit in the board examination of Central Board of Secondary Education in the national capital. Subsequently, the board examination center can become a major attraction for the rapid spread of the virus. He then said, “The life and health of children is very important to us. I request the center to cancel the CBSE exam. “

Citing the latest report of corono virus cases in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said that 13,500 cases had been reported in the last 24 hours. And in the last 10–15 days, 65 percent of infected patients are under 45 years of age. He has appealed to the youth to stay indoors, follow the Kovid-19 security protocol and to leave the house only when needed.

Appeal for plasma donation as well
Kejriwal said, the last time people had donated plasma in a big way. Now again the plasm is low in stock. Everyday plasma demand is coming. Everyone is requested to donate the plasma to those who have recovered from the corona. This is the time when we leave selfishness and help each other. We all of Delhi are one family.

As of the revised date of CBSE Board Exam 2021, Class 10 exams will be conducted between May 4 to June 7, and for Class 12 will be conducted from May 4 to June 15.

With the rapid rise in cases of corona virus, the demand for cancellation or postponement of board examinations is also increasing. Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and Bollywood actor Sonu Sood have also requested the central government to cancel the CBSE board examinations.
