The minister admitted that it was a mistake by the concerned official and there was no justification for it. The question was asked in three districts of Seemanchal region including Kishanganj, Araria and Purnea. “We have initiated an inquiry into the matter and asked the district magistrate to investigate and find out who set such a question,” Yadav said. “We will take action against that person. Kashmir is an integral part of our country,” he said.

Reacting to the BJP allegation, Yadav said that mistakes can be made by any person. “Mistakes happened by PM Narendra Modi as well. You (BJP leaders) need to keep in mind those mistakes as well. PM Narendra Modi said Takshashila university is in Bihar. The Takshashila university is in Pakistan and Vikramshila university is in Bihar. Still, the way the question was asked in the class seven examination was absolutely wrong and the culprits will be booked for it,” Yadav said.
The question was asked in an examination paper of English to students of class 7 of government schools coming under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan which is regulated by the Bihar State Project of Education Council.
