Students' body raps Sanskrit Board for 'faulty' question papers

GUWAHATI: The mother of all Indian languages, Sanskrit, seems to be in a pathetic condition in the state. To add insult to injury, the Sanskrit Board, which conducts examination in the language, has set faulty question papers for the Class X and XII exams that were held recently.

The All Assam Sanskrit Students' Union (Aassu), the students' organization representing Sanskrit students in the state, alleged that Sanskrit Board has not done anything for development of the language in the state.

"The students studying Sanskrit in the state are in a very pathetic condition. The Sanskrit Board's utter negligence has led to setting of faulty question papers for the class X and XII exams," said Jugal Kumar Mahanta, the secretary of Aassu.
