The BJP on Tuesday demanded the resignation of the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education Chairman D P Jaroli, accusing him of making political statements while holding a constitutional post.
Former education minister and BJP MLA from Ajmer North, Vasudev Devnani, said political comments from a person holding a Constitutional post are unwarranted.
“The political comments of the chairman of the Board of Secondary Education are indecent and unconstitutional. The state government should immediately sack Jaroli,” Devnani said.
Jaroli had attacked BJP leaders including Rajya Sabha MP Kirodi Lal Meena for questioning the Board over alleged irregularities in the conduct of Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers (REET)-2021 held on September 26. While denying allegations of the leakage of question paper and answer sheet of REET with the involvement of the Board, Jaroli had attacked Meena and made comments about the party’s state president Satish Poonia and central government.
At the same time, he had praised certain Congress and BJP leaders saying they know about his working style. BJP’s state spokesperson Ramlal Sharma also demanded the removal of Jalori as the Board chairman.
“He has not maintained the dignity of the constitutional post. The political language he spoke indicates that he will be joining Congress. He should be sacked,” he said. (PTI)
