The Congress-led state government ordered a probe into the “printing mistake” which cropped up at a time when BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur’s remarks on Gandhiji’s assassin Nathuram Godse in Parliament had triggered a political firestorm.
One of the answers in Class 10 preparatory exam paper of the state education board in Madhya Pradesh had the word 'Gandhiji' mistakenly printed instead of 'Gambling'.
In reply to a question on what were the qualities of “subuddhi” (righteous man) and “kubuddhi” (immoral man), the answer read “kubuddhi was a wicked man and led a life of drinking and gandhiji”, instead of “drinking and gambling”.
The error appeared in a 45-minute model test paper to help students prepare before they appear for the final exams. The state government has ordered a probe into the mistake and they also assured that the guilty would get punished.
