'Under BJP rule, scams pushing country's future into darkness': Priyanka Gandhi comments on UGC-NET and NEET controversies

PTC News Desk: The central government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came under fire on Friday from Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for regular test paper leaks. She claimed that the BJP's control has made the issue a national problem and has "ruined the future" of millions of young people.

In the midst of controversy surrounding purported anomalies in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) medical entrance test and the cancelation of the UGC-NET exam because of integrity issues, Priyanka Gandhi launched an attack on the government.


She called for strict action to be taken against the "NEET scam" in order to secure justice for 24 lakh kids in a post on X.

Leaders of Congress and laborers demonstrated on Friday against the NEET medical exam cancelation. On May 5, over 24 lakh candidates took the NEET exam. Nevertheless, there were claims of paper leaks following the release of the findings on June 4.

Colleagues in the Indian National Congress staged protests against the NEET exam scam across the nation today. Under the BJP government, widespread corruption in hiring practices, document leaks, and school frauds are putting the future of the nation in jeopardy. This dirty game needs to end right away. In order for 24 lakh young people to receive justice, we demand that the NEET test scam be addressed immediately and strictly, Priyanka stated in the article.

The Congress leader said, "In the last five years, papers of 43 recruitment exams have been leaked in the country," in another post on X that was written in Hindi. Under BJP administration, paper leaks have turned into a national issue in our country that has already destroyed the future for millions of young people. India is the world's youngest nation. We are the country with the most young people. The BJP government is weakening these young people instead of empowering and skilling them.

According to Priyanka Gandhi, millions of gifted children put in countless hours of study time every day to get ready for tests, and their parents forgo a great deal in order to afford their education.

"Youngsters wait years for a position to open up. When a position opens up, there are expenses associated with filling out the application, taking the test, and, in the end, corruption renders the entire endeavor futile. The nation is being weakened by the BJP's corruption, the speaker continued.

Rahul Gandhi, the head of the Congress, claimed on Thursday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would find it difficult to manage the government after he "psychologically collapsed" during the Lok Sabha Elections. Additionally, he asserted that the BJP and its parent organization, the RSS, had acquired control of educational institutions, which was the primary cause of document leaks.

When students at a Rajasthan center received English question papers rather than Hindi ones, it sparked a scandal around this year's NEET. Additionally, allegations of ripped OMR sheets and delays in paper distribution were received. Thirteen persons, including four examinees, were taken into custody after a case concerning a paper leak in Patna was filed.

Thousands of students protested for weeks across India, claiming that marks were inflated, question papers were leaked, and grace marks were given arbitrarily. Opposition parties insisted on an inquiry into the matters overseen by the Supreme Court.
