Punjabi medium students get paper in English

The Punjabi University’s claims of promoting Punjabi language fell flat today when the Theatre and Television Department’s Punjabi medium students got their question paper in English.

A student of the department informed that 14 out of 16 students had opted Punjabi as a medium for the examination. “We were shocked to see the question paper in English. Many of us faced difficulty in comprehending the questions and when we brought the matter to the notice of the superintendent, he refused to do anything in the matter,” he said.

Other students informed that they had simply asked the superintendent to get the paper translated for their convenience, but he misbehaved with them. “He asked us to take the examination or walk out. We requested him to allow us to talk to higher authorities, but he refused and stating that if we walked out of the room, he will not let us in again. I did the paper according to my understanding of the English language,” he added.

Controller of Examination Pawan Kumar Singla said no such matter had been brought to his notice, but he would certainly look into the matter.
