Mumbai: Maharashtra cabinet minister Aaditya Thackeray on Saturday moved the Supreme Court challenging the decision of the University Grants Commission to hold final examinations in September.

The examinations had been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown.

In a press release, the Yuva Sena said it had filed the PIL in the Supreme Court on the directions of state Minister Aaditya Thackeray, who happens to be president of the outfit.

In the press release, the Yuva Sena claimed the UGC and ministry of human resource development had announced final-year examinations in various universities would be conducted in September, ignoring the “physical and mental health, anxiety and safety of students across the country”.

“COVID-19 is a national disaster, in view of which the UGC should have cancelled final year exams… however, it seems the UGC has not understood the full extent of dilemma the country is facing,” the Yuva Sena statement said.

They have expressed that students be promoted based on the aggregate marks they have scored during the academic year.
