"A news item has appeared in section of press along with relevant copies of the question paper, which is self explanatory. Comments and inputs of state government on the news item may be sent to the department," the ministry said in a letter sent on Monday.

Slamming the Rajasthan's Congress government over the question paper, the state BJP asked whether it was a political science paper or a Congress history paper. The party also took a dig at Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot over the issue. "Seeing this question paper of political Science, many students did not even understand whether the examination was about Political Science or the history of Congress! Perhaps Gehlot ji has now considered Congress as a part of history," the party tweeted in Hindi.
