Former state education minister Bhukkal raised the issue, saying some state universities have issued exam schedules for the next month.
“Who is responsible if the students get the infection,” she asked.
Pal assured that exams can be postponed if necessary.
However, Kanwar Pal said the government would take every precaution when conducting the exams to ensure the students’ safety.
Pal said the students work hard for 14 years to get a degree and the government doesn’t want their efforts to be in vain and passed without exams.
“If you apply for a job, your degree will be considered a coronavirus degree,” Pal said, asking what value it would be to her.
If we take online exams, we will arrange it, he said.
In response to Pal’s “Corona Degree” remark, Hooda said to the Minister in a lighter way, “Then people will call you Corona Time Minister?”
