Millions of children are suffering because of a mistake made by two people. How to correct when something goes wrong?

Rajasekhar is an active worker of BJP.
Minister KTR said that he has lodged a complaint with the DGP on behalf of BRS, suspecting that there is any conspiracy in the paper leakage case, Rajasekhar Reddy, who is A2 in the case, is an active worker of BJP and is very active on social media.

It doesn’t matter which party is behind it. Strict legal action will be taken. None of the candidates need to worry.. We appeal to the political parties not to play with children’s lives. Those who have written the exam are worried about re-writing it. We canceled the exams without raising any doubts. Those who are qualified should do it with a big heart. Do not believe in myths and suspicions. KTR said that the SIT investigation has not been completed yet.. All things will come out.
