Students are our future: Sonia Gandhi
Sonia Gandhi released a video message on Friday about the NEET-JEE exam. He said, ‘Students are our future, we depend on them to build a better India. So if a decision is to be taken regarding their future, it is important that it is taken with their consent. ‘
The central government has refused to reconsider it despite the opposition’s growing demand. Cabinet ministers of non-BJP ruled states have filed a petition in the Supreme Court.
The cabinet ministers of West Bengal, Punjab, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand have petitioned the Supreme Court, demanding the cancellation of the examination. It is necessary to mention here that the number of students registered in NEET is 15.97 lakhs and the number of registered students of JEE is 9.53 lakhs.
In a letter to Prime Minister Modi, people associated with academia have supported the conduct of JEE / NEET exam. Also said that it is expected that students will not lose a year. People associated with academia wrote this letter at a time when students and Chief Ministers of many states have opposed the conduct of JEE / NEET exams amid Corona crisis.
