Congress leader Rahul Gandhi criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not responding to the ongoing NEET exam controversy, emphasizing that the Congress party is dedicated to championing the cause of the youth from public demonstrations to parliamentary debates to ensure stringent policies against exam paper leaks.

Gandhi, the former Congress president, highlighted the recent arrests in Bihar, Gujarat, and Haryana, which he claims expose systematic and organized corruption within the examination process.

He pointed out that these BJP-governed states have become hotspots for paper leaks.

In a statement on X (formerly Twitter), Gandhi expressed his concerns in Hindi, noting, "Narendra Modi, as usual, remains silent on the issue affecting the future of over 2.4 million NEET exam candidates." He reiterated that the arrests in the aforementioned states underscore the planned corruption and the significant role these regions play in the paper leak scandal.

The Congress manifesto promises to protect the future of the youth by implementing stringent laws against paper leaks.

"We are committed to fulfilling our opposition role by developing robust policies, advocating for the youth from the streets to the Parliament, and exerting pressure on the government," Gandhi stated.

His comments followed the Supreme Court's observations on the NEET-UG 2024 examination. The court stressed that any negligence, even as minimal as 0.001 percent, must be thoroughly addressed.

Recognizing the hard work students put into exam preparations, the court urged that disputes regarding the NEET-UG 2024 examination should not be adversarial.

The vacation bench of Justices Vikram Nath and SVN Bhatti made these remarks while hearing two separate petitions concerning grievances, including the issue of grace marks awarded in the May 5 examination.

The National Testing Agency (NTA), responsible for conducting the nationwide pre-medical entrance test, was represented by advocates in this hearing.
