Postpone #NEET exam. Let them have a fair chance.
Rahul Gandhi’s remarks come a day after the Supreme Court refused to defer NEET-UG- 21 examinations scheduled for September 12.
On Monday, a bench of the Supreme Court of India which was headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar refused to interfere with a petition filed which sought directions to the authorities concerned for rescheduling the NEET UG- 21.
The bench led by Justice Khanwilkar said, “We are not inclined to pass any order. Sorry. You (the petitioner) may approach and make your representation to the Competent Authorities with your prayers and reliefs you seek,” and refused to interfere with the petition and pass any order on the issue.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) on the 3rd of September had clarified to the bench that the students would be allowed to appear for the examination, irrespective of the fact that CBSE results would not be declared by then.
