Globarena given contract to hold Inter exams against rules: Revanth Reddy

Telangana Congress Working President Revanth Reddy alleged that it was the then information technology minister K.T. Rama Rao who had given the tender to Globarena Technologies which is being blamed for the suicides of Intermediate students, following goof-up in the results released recently.
 
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan, Reddy felt that the functioning of the Telangana state Intermediate Board was ridden with errors. “How could the government give the tender relating to Inter results to some other organisation other than the Centre for Good Governance (CGG),” he questioned.
 
Earlier, different wings like issuing of hall tickets, their printing and declaration of results used to be given to different organisations but now, the entire job had been entrusted to Globarena, he pointed out. Reddy reminded that there had been no mistakes in the results as long as it was under the supervision of the CGG.
 
The Congress working president also questioned on why action was not initiated against those behind the Engineering Agriculture, Medicine Common Entrance Test (Eamcet) question paper leakage in 2016. “Why was a case not filed against Magnetic Infotech which secured the tender for holding the Eamcet then,” he questioned.
 
He faulted the Golbarena Technologies, which has a partnership with Magnetic Infotech, for participating in the tender process for conducting Inter exams even when major mistakes occurred in Eamcet under its supervision. 
 
The Congress leader reminded that the Magnetic Infotech had been blacklisted by the SSC and the Intermediate Board. Earlier, Globarena and Magnetic Infotech had cheated Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University in Kakinada too, Reddy alleged.
 
He demanded that the government should make it clear as to who had violated the rules in sanctioning the tender to Globarena, which already had a tainted background with regard to holding exams.
