Bengaluru: In a surprising incident, a candidate appearing for the Karnataka Teachers’ Eligibility Test-2022, conducted by the state school education department, found that her admit card has a picture of actress Sunny Leone on it instead of her own.
The purported admit card screenshot, which is doing rounds on the internet, has left many in surprise.
Taking cognizance of the matter, the state education department has ordered a probe, media reports suggest.
The examination was held on November 6. A total of 3,32,913 candidates appeared for the exam conducted across 781 centres in Karnataka.
Karnataka Congress social media chairperson BR Naidu on Tuesday took to Twitter to target the ruling-BJP saying: What else can be expected from the party watching the blue film in the House?
“In the teacher’s recruitment hall ticket, instead of the candidate’s photo, the education department had printed the photo of Blue Film actress Sunny Leone. What can we expect from the party which watched blue films inside the assembly,” Naidu tweeted in Kannada along with the screengrab of admit card.
@BCNagesh_bjp Hey, if you want to see a blue-chip star, hang a photo, don’t use the education department!, he added.
ಶಿಕ್ಷಕರ ನೇಮಕಾತಿಯ ಪ್ರವೇಶಾತಿ ಪತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಅಭ್ಯರ್ಥಿಯ ಬದಲು ನೀಲಿಚಿತ್ರ ತಾರೆಯ ಫೋಟೋ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ.
ಸದನದಲ್ಲಿ ನೀಲಿಚಿತ್ರ ವೀಕ್ಷಿಸುವ ಪಕ್ಷದವರಿಂದ ಇನ್ನೇನು ತಾನೇ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯ?@BCNagesh_bjp ಅವರೇ, ನೀಲಿಚಿತ್ರ ತಾರೆ ನೋಡುವ ಹಂಬಲವಿದ್ದರೆ ಒಂದು ಫೋಟೋ ನೇತಾಕಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ, ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ಇಲಾಖೆಯನ್ನು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಬೇಡಿ! pic.twitter.com/Czb7W0d1xJ

Responding to Naidu’s allegation, BC Nagesh’s office issued a statement saying, “Candidate has to upload a photo. The system takes whatever photo they attach to the file. When we asked the candidate if she put Sunny Leone’s photo on her admit card, she said her husband’s friend uploaded her information,” reports India Today.
The Karnataka Education Department said that it would file an FIR after investigating the matter, the report added.
