Scores of students from schools under the Bhubaneswar region of the CBSE have alleged that they had secured poor marks due to faulty evaluation, while many others claimed their results were withheld without citing any reason.

Concerned over the manner in which the CBSE XII board results were announced, Patnaik had on Wednesday sent a letter to Javadekar seeking his intervention for providing relief to the affected students and parents.

Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had also met the aggrieved students yesterday and taken up the matter with Javadekar for an early solution.

Though a two-member team of officials of CBSE visited Bhubaneswar on Wednesday they could not resolve the matter.

They had, however, assured the agitating students to resolve the issue within 15 days.
