‘Blatantly misogynist’: Sonia Gandhi lashes out at CBSE over passage in class 10 exam; what board did

The CBSE on Monday dropped a comprehension passage and the accompanying questions from the Class-10 English exam paper and decided to award full marks for it to students, following an outrage over the board allegedly promoting "gender stereotyping" and supporting "regressive notions". The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had referred the matter to subject experts on Sunday and sought their feedback. Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday condemned the "blatantly misogynist" and "nonsensical" questions in the Class-10 CBSE exam, saying those reflected "extremely poorly" on the standards of education and testing. Raising the issue during the Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, she demanded an immediate withdrawal of the said passage, an apology from the government, and a review into this "gravest lapse".
