Congress chairman Rahul Gandhi said Tuesday that the Modi government had ignored the “real concerns” of JEE and NEET aspirants who, because of their “arrogance”, are calling for the entrance exam to be postponed and threatening India’s future.
Gandhi’s attack came on a day the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) -Mains for engineering college admission due to strict precautionary and social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The Congress Party and Gandhi have supported a section’s request to postpone JEE and NEET exams in the wake of the rising number of coronavirus cases.
The JEE exam, which has been postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place between September 1st and 6th.
“The Modi government is putting India’s future at risk. Arrogance makes it ignore the real concerns of JEE-NEET aspirants and the demands of those who have passed SSC and other exams. Give jobs, not empty slogans,” Gandhi said on Twitter.
He also used the hashtag “SpeakUpForSSCRailwayStudents” to discuss the cause of students who have passed the personnel selection committee exams but whose results are not yet known.
The General Secretary of Congress, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, also raised the issue.
“The SSC and the railways have withheld the results of many investigations for years. Another’s result gets stuck while someone else’s exams are delayed, ”she said.
“Until when will the government test the patience of the youth, how long? The government should listen to the youth. The youth need jobs, not speeches, “she said in a tweet in Hindi.
She asked for an explanation of the results of the combined final examination (CGLE) of the personnel selection committee.
