New Delhi: The current Bihar Public Service Fee (BPSC) examination paper leak had delivered to the forefront the state authorities led by Nitish Kumar’s large failure to conduct the highest most state recruitment examination pretty, however the episode had additionally compelled analysts and observers to take a look at the deep-rooted structural drawback in Bihar’s schooling and recruitment sector which the Janata Dal (United) led authorities had not been in a position to right regardless of ruling the state for greater than 17 years. The Sunday Guardian traced the structural issues inside Bihar’s schooling sector and the way “Susashan Babu” who labored properly in infrastructure and plenty of different sectors had failed to handle this sector.
“Schooling is a major indicator which defines any state’s progress and its total growth. Any state which needs to do exceptionally properly must do tremendously within the schooling sector. However sadly, the state of Bihar beneath Nitish Kumar’s rule has failed miserably so far as the schooling system is anxious. Greater than 2,00,000 posts are vacant in Bihar’s authorities faculties. College system had collapsed. Vice- Chancellors of many universities have confronted critical fees of financial misconduct. The undergraduate diploma which is for a three-year interval will get accomplished in Bihar in 5 years. Those that can afford and are from higher center class backgrounds go to Pune, Kota and New Delhi for increased schooling. I can problem anybody that greater than 50% of scholars who’re making ready in Kota for the engineering and pre-medical examinations are from Bihar. The onerous earned-money of the state is contributing to different states’ GDP,” mentioned Binod Kumar Choudhary, a retired professor beneath Muzaffarpur’s Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Bihar College (BRABU). Many current reviews have validated the identical.

Many consultants additionally consider that accountable the state authorities for the failure is just not proper. “The society of Bihar had additionally a serious position on this structural collapse of the schooling sector.
