Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted that she is glad that the Class 10 exams have been cancelled but insisted that a final decision must be made for CBSE Class examinations 12 as well. Urging the government to decide now, Priyanka said that keeping students under undue pressure till June does not make sense.
Glad the government has finally cancelled the 10th standard exams however a final decision MUST be taken for the 12th grade too. Keeping students under undue pressure until June makes no sense.
It’s unfair. I urge the government to decide now.#cancelboardexam2021

It’s a big relief to 30 lakh students, their parents and teachers. Cancellation/postponement of CBSE exam for 10&12 was being demanded by all of us since many days.

Congress leader Dr Shama Mohamed said that going ahead with conducting the exams would have been madness right now. She shared that the decision is a relief to parents and students.
#CBSE exams have been cancelled for 10th std & postponed for the 12th. Postponing exams is yet another suggestion of @RahulGandhi that the govt has adopted. It would have been madness to go ahead with exams right now. This is a relief to students & parents.#cbseboardexam2021
