“NEET NEET!”

The opposition called out “NEET NEET” during the oath-taking of Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan in the 18th Lok Sabha today, Monday, June 24. This follows the ongoing controversy around grace marks and paper leaks of NEET UG, the medical entrance exam.

After the new government was formed, today marks the first day of the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha. Concerned about the lakhs of students affected by the postponement and cancellation of entrance examinations, the opposition called out slogans like “NEET NEET” in the Lok Sabha today. A video posted by a X user (@NarundarM) has been viral.

Notably, within days after Pradhan took charge as the educational minister again, alleged irregularities in entrance exams conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) came to light. Here are a few:

- Mass outrage on NTA's awarding of grace marks to several NEET UG candidates

- Cancellation of the NEET-PG 2024 and the postponement of UGC-NET (University Grants Commission - National Eligibility Test) examination

NEET controversy

Alleging paper leaks, inflated scores and arbitrary grace marks, thousands of students across the country have been protesting for weeks. About 67 students scored a perfect 720/720 score in the NEET-UG exam, the majority of whom were from a single centre in Faridabad.

So far, the Bihar police have arrested 13 involved in the case.

Today, June 24, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) headed to the Bihar Police's Economic Offences Unit (EOU) to collect the evidence related to the paper leak.
