Patna: Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) leader and MP Pappu Yadav at a press conference in Patna on Sunday launched a full-frontal attack on the CBSE schools in Bihar saying Bihar was the 'hub of all CBSE scandals' that generates more than Rs. 500 crore annually that is then 'disbursed' to those schools that take willing participation in the scam.

Yadav, an MP from Madhepura and a former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader, said that the only way to get to the bottom of the scams would be through a full CBI enquiry. He further demanded full scrutiny of the assets and properties of school owners, directors, and managers of CBSE-accredited schools in Bihar.

Suggesting massive irregularity in the awarding of CBSE accreditation, the MP said most private schools did not even meet the minimum requirement of the CBSE and yet they were recognized to perpetuate the scam that benefits senior officials, school operators, and the middlemen at the cost of the future of the students of Bihar.

The JAP leader also slammed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying he, hiding behind the excuse of bringing social changes in Bihar through prohibition and anti-dowry movements, had completely abandoned the agenda of improving education in the state.

"Education in Bihar is under the strong grip of corruption and mismanagement but the Chief Minister is showing zero concern for the future of our young children. He is too busy bringing his own version of social change in the state even as education in Bihar has hit the rock bottom," he said.
