Patna: Girl abandoned by father scores 99.4% in Class 10
BJP MP Varun Gandhi has brought to light the inspiring story of Patna girl Sreeja, who scored 99.4% in the recently announced CBSE Class 10 board exam results, on Twitter. After her mother's demise, her father reportedly abandoned her, following which her maternal grandparents took care of her. Gandhi, who appreciated her efforts, tweeted a video interview of Sreeja with her proud grandmother, too.
Why does this story matter?
The CBSE released the 2022 Class 10 and Class 12 board exam results on Friday. The Class 10 board examinations were held from April 26 to May 24, while the Class 12 exams were held from April 26 to June 15. A total of 21,16,209 students reportedly took the Class 10 examination this time, while the pass percentage stood at 94.4%.
Her father must be regretting now: Sreeja's grandmother
"I'm extremely delighted with the results," Sreeja's grandmother stated in the now-viral video interview. When asked about her son-in-law, she replied, "He left the girl post my daughter's death. We haven't seen him since... He got married again." Emphasizing her granddaughter's performance, she added, "And now, after seeing the board results, I think he (the father) must be regretting his decision [to abandon her]."
