PANAJI: Three leaders of the congressional National Students Union of India (NSUI) were on an indefinite hunger strike on Saturday calling for the JEE and NEET exams to be postponed. The heads of state and government, including Ahraz Mulla, the head of NSUI in Goa, Prasenjeet Dhage and Naushad Chawdhari, also called for tuition fees to be cut by 60 percent in view of the COVID-19 situation.

Dhage claimed that some colleges charge students fees of Rs 60,000 to Rs 70,000, which is a huge financial burden on parents.

He said the fast will continue until the central government agrees to postpone the JEE and NEET exams.

On Friday, ministers from six non-BJP countries rescheduled the Supreme Court against its August 17 order to allow the exams.

The Supreme Court had refused to interfere in running the medical and technical entrance exams, stating that life must go on and that students could not lose a precious year due to the pandemic.
