New Delhi: Following confirmation that JEE Main and NEET would be held as per schedule, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia didn’t hide his disappointment at the decision. Sisodia took to Twitter to express his displeasure over the matter.
Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main 2020) and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Undergraduate, (NEET 2020 UG) are slated to be held in September this year.
“The central government is playing with the lives of millions of students in the name JEE-NEET Exams. My request to the Center is to cancel both these exams immediately and make an alternative arrangement for admission this year. In this time of unprecedented crisis, an unprecedented step will lead to a solution,” the minister said.
“Today in 21st century India, we cannot think of an alternate option for entrance examinations! This is not possible. Only the intention of the government should be to think in the interest of students, instead of conducting NEET-JEE, there can be thousands of safe ways,” Sisodia added.
JEE-NEET की परीक्षा के नाम पर लाखों छात्रों की ज़िंदगी से खेल रही है केंद्र सरकार. मेरी केंद्र से विनती है कि पूरे देश में ये दोनो परीक्षाएँ तुरंत रद्द करें और इस साल एडमिशन की वैकल्पिक व्यवस्था करे.
अभूतपूर्व संकट के इस समय में अभूतपूर्व कदम से ही समाधान निकलेगा. @DrRPNishank
