The congressional leader’s comment comes after Prime Minister Modi addressed his monthly radio program “Mann ki Baat” earlier today. In the program, the Prime Minister also spoke about making “toys for the world” and highlighted India’s ability to become a “toy center”.
The director’s comments even came as the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) are due to take place in September. In particular, students and opposition parties are protesting the decision to hold the exams amid the ongoing pandemic.
Ministers from six opposition-ruled states have also requested instructions from the Supreme Court to postpone the reviews to review the previous order on the matter.
The Supreme Court dismissed a petition to postpone NEET and JEE on August 17, which is due to take place in September 2020, ruling that student careers cannot be long jeopardized.
