 NEW DELHI : Congress leader Srinivas BV on Sunday demanded an inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG 2024 examination.

“…24 lakh students took the exam (NEET). How can 67 students secure Rank 1 and that too of the same centre? The students & their parents have raised their voices…Inquiry should be done…,” Srinivas said

“Two students have died by suicide,” Srinivas alleged. “I claim with certainty that a big scam has taken place in this NEET exam… I request the government to set up a committee and conduct a re-exam,” he said.

Indian Youth Congress workers on Sunday protested at Raisina Road against the alleged rigging in the NEET-UG 2024 exam result.

“We have to fight to get justice for the aggrieved students,” One of the protesters said.

Earlier in the day, Congress’ MP-elect Rahul Gandhi targeted Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi over the alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG 2024 examination, as he promised to become the voice of the students in Parliament.

“Narendra Modi has not even taken oath yet and the scam in NEET exam has devastated more than 24 lakh students and their families. 6 students from the same exam centre top the exam with maximum marks, many get such marks which are technically not possible, but the government is continuously denying the possibility of paper leak,” Rahul Gandhi said in a post on X.

The NTA on Saturday set up a committee to review the grace marks awarded to NEET UG 2024 candidates amid allegations of mark inflation.
The Ministry of Education established a committee to review the grace marks awarded to over 1,500 candidates. Several candidates alleged that the inflation of marks has resulted in 67 candidates securing the top rank, including six from the same exam centre in Haryana.

Amid allegations raised by the Opposition leaders on the conduct of the 2024 NEET examination, the Director General of the National Testing Agency (NTA), Subodh Kumar Singh said, “They (the committee) will meet soon and they will be able to submit their recommendation within a week.” (ANI)
