Omar, Mehbooba want PM, Parliamentarians to talk on NEET “irregularities”

Srinagar, June 24 (UNI) National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Monday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should have spoken over the NEET row on the first day of the Parliament session.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Sunday took over the probe into the alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG exam by registering a criminal case.

“While attacking the opposition is the prerogative of the Hon PM & we wouldn’t expect BJP being humbled in the recent polls to change that, it would have been in the fitness of things for the Hon PM to spare a few words for the young men & women for whom the #NEET scandal is the only issue that matters. Exam pe charcha isn’t a one-off but a long-term commitment to the interests & concerns of students,” Omar posted on X.

Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti has also urged Members of Parliament to voice concerns of students who are in a state of disappointment.

“While hundreds of elected Member Parliamentarians will take an oath today after their well-earned victories, lacs of students across India who toiled day & night to take multiple competitive exams will watch helplessly as their hard work goes down the drain,” she said in a post on X.

“Parliament – India’s temple of democracy will stand stark in contrast to the despair & despondency these youngsters have been pushed into. Hope every parliamentarian will rise above party affiliation & raise their voice for our younger generation whose future looks very bleak,” she added.
