The now popular conjoined twins who had earlier refused any special arrangements for writing their exams have passed their intermediate examination. Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) on Tuesday announced results for its students of inter 1st and 2nd year. Over 9 lakh students appeared for the exam that was conducted in May.
Among them were Veena and Vani, conjoined twins who passed the examination with first-class marks. Satyavathi Rathod, minister for tribal welfare and child welfare, extended her greetings to them, and she also lauded the officers who helped them.
Telangana education minister Sabitha Indira Reddy announced the results and over 60 percent of students passed in second class while the rest passed in first class. Veena and Vani want to continue their education and do not want their situation to cause hurdles in their further studies.
Incidentally, both girls are adamant and want to become independent. It is known that though they have parents, the parents refuse to take them home as they say they cannot afford to bring them up.
