N. Ashok, a student union leader said that officials had given marks according to their whims and fancies.

Mr Ashok demanded that minister for education Jagadeeshwar Reddy resign and that a sitting judge should inquire into the irregularities.

T. Hemanth, another student leader said that they will step up their agitation till justice is done to the students.

He said that the Intermediate Board secretary should be held responsible and suspended immediately. There were doubts that lakhs of rupees had changed hands in the deal and all issues should be investigated, he added.

“The student community is in distress and the government should give an assurance on their future first. The correction of mark lists should be done on a war footing,” said P. Gayatri, a student, adding that students should not worry over the defects in the mark list and student organisations would exert pressure on government in solving the issue.
