“The issue of REET examinations is big. We want to get to the bottom of it. Every mistake demands a price. Those who have made the mistake will have to pay a price. Several people have been arrested in the case. There could be more arrests. This is not about a person but about a system. The Opposition should not make baseless statements on the matter. They do not understand that their attitude is not constructive. They criticize everything. Unemployment is the biggest issue in the country”, CM Gehlot said.

Despite several arrests in the case, the BJP has been demanding a CBI enquiry into the case. CM Gehlot, however, on Sunday, asked opposition leaders not to make baseless statements on the matter.

“We have handed the matter to SOG and the matter is under investigation. The Opposition has been making demands such as handing over the enquiry to the CBI. There has to be some basis to the comments made by the Opposition. There are several people in the Opposition, including one union minister who have been making baseless statements. They should do some research on the matter and thereafter make statements”, the CM added.
