JAIPUR: The BJP on Friday attacked the Congress government over a Class 12 board exam question paper, claiming that six questions in it were aimed at glorifying the ruling party in Rajasthan. This may be an attempt to mislead the new generation because it does not know the history of the Congress, BJP state president Satish Poonia said in Udaipur. "Six questions in the Class 12 board exam question paper for Political Science were related to the Congress in which an unsuccessful attempt was made to glorify the party," he said.

Alleging politicisation of educational institutes, the BJP demanded the suspension of the person who set the question paper. Poonia said the questions included "The general election of 1971 proved to be an election for the re-establishment of the Congress. Explain this statement" and "Who gave the slogan of Garibi Hatao". The others were "Briefly discuss the Congress as a social and ideological alliance", "How many seats did the Congress win in the 1984 Lok Sabha elections", "Which party dominated the first three general elections in India" and "Under what circumstances did the Congress contest the 1967 general election and what mandate did it get", the Rajasthan BJP chief added.

"The Congress should tell who imposed emergency in the country, who misused Article 356 more than 100 times, who was guilty of the anti-Sikh riots in 1984," he said. "It is the same Congress which calls Akbar great but does not glorify the greatness of Maharana Pratap," Poonia alleged. A question related to the communist party was asked as well – "On what basis was CPI divided". Another question was "Who was the founder of BSP", the BJP said.
