HYDERABAD: The Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) has postponed the second year Intermediate examination to be held on March 14 to March 16 (Sunday) apparently due to the bandh call given by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The second year papers in Mathematics (Paper II-B), Zoology and History apart from the vocational papers were scheduled to be held on March 14. A statement from the BIE said that they would now be held on March 16 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has called for a bandh in Telangana districts on Friday, coinciding with the visit of AICC president Sonia Gandhi to protest against the “indifference” of the Congress-led UPA in bifurcation of the State.
