More than 150 academics from India and abroad have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that the postponement of the Joint Entrance Examination JEE Mains (JEE Mains 2020) and National Eligibility cum Entrance Examination NEET (NEET 2020) means to the students. Will be messing with future because it will ruin their precious year. On the other hand, NTA has also issued the admit card of NEET. More than five and a half lakh students have also downloaded within four hours of its release.
Messing with the future is not good
Academics have said in the letter, ‘Some people are playing with the future of students to advance their political agenda. Youth and students are the future of the country, but in the wake of the Kovid-19 epidemic, their careers have also been clouded with uncertainty. There is a lot of apprehension about admissions and classes, which needs to be removed at the earliest. According to the letter, like every year, this year also lakhs of students have passed the examination of 12th and now they are sitting in the house eagerly awaiting the next step. It cannot be played at any cost with the dreams and future of our youth and students.
These Students wrote a letter to PM
The signatories to the letter include academics from the University of Delhi, IGNOU, Lucknow University, JNU, BHU and IIT Delhi, apart from London University, University of California, Hebru University of Jerusalem and Ben Gurion University of Israel.
Why is there opposition to exams?
Actually these examinations are being opposed in view of the corona infection. This confusion about examinations in the Corona period is not about JEE Main and NEET alone, but also in the final year of the university and other examinations. Though the demand for postponing these examinations has been rising for the last several months, the government believes that to maintain the educational quality, it is necessary to conduct them.
Who is protesting?
There are two factions across the country regarding the NEET and JEE Main examinations. One group is in favor of conducting examinations in September and another is seeking to postpone the examinations. The class seeking to postpone the examinations is also getting support from the Congress and other opposition political parties. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is an attacker on the government regarding this matter. Rahul tweeted and targeted the government and demanded that the solution be resolved by talking to all the parties. Earlier states like Maharashtra, Odisha, Bengal and Delhi have demanded postponement of examinations.
