Sardessai chides Parrikar over SSC exam start date


 Independent MLA Vijai Sardessai ridiculed Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who also holds the education portfolio, over the SSC examination commencement date which falls on Maundy Thursday (March 28).
“The person who equates himself or his troubles to that of Jesus Christ has now decided to transfer his troubles to SSC students by holding the first exam of English on March 28, which happens to be Maundy Thursday,” Sardessai said and mocked, “This itself speaks for the Education Minister’s love for Christ.”
 People are waiting to see whether he will make amends in this case or will also remain defiant because this has been pointed out by his political opponent, he added. [H]
