Happiness lasted only a few hours for Fatehabad’s Monika Rani after the Haryana Education Board, Bhiwani, declared the wrong merit list on Monday at about 4pm.

According to the earlier results, Monika from Bhirdana village had topped Haryana, scoring 493 marks out of 500. Soon after, the list was withdrawn, with a new merit list declared later Monday evening.

While Monika, who wants to become a neurologist, refused to comment on the matter, her father Het Ram, a farmer by profession, said, “This is a big joke done.”

According to the new results, Yudhveer Singh of Lehranwali village in Sirsa has topped Haryana, scoring 499 out of 500 marks.

Talking with Hindustan Times, Yudhveer’s father Jasbir Singh said, “We are happy, but are also feeling bad for the Fatehabad girls who got first and joint third position in results.” “I am a farmer by profession, but I can understand the feelings. I am also feeling proud of my son,” he added.

Yudhveer’s mother Sarbjeet Kaur and brother Navdeep Singh also expressed their happiness. ”Yudhveer is a hard worker and a bright student. He studied for more than eight hours a day,” they said. “I want to become a pilot and I will study harder in the future,” Yudhveer, a student of VN Senior Secondary School, said.

Goof-up

According to the first results declared by Haryana Board of Education, three girls from Fatehabad district — Monika Rani of Bhirdana village, Sakshi Karwasra of village Bhutankalan and Anjali of Tohana town — figured at the top three ranks.

Sakshi’s father Balwant Karwasra and Anjali’s father Krishan Kumar refused to comment on the matter. But, Sakshi said she will get her answer sheet rechecked.
