We urge PM to debate NEET-UG paper leak issue, says Rahul Gandhi targeting Centre

| @indiablooms | 28 Jun 2024, 04:36 pm

Congress leader and LoP Rahul Gandhi on Friday once again tried to corner the Centre over the paperleaks in the NEET-UG and released video where he is seen urging Prime Minister Narendra Modi to debate the issue.

He posted on X: " The INDIA Opposition bloc wants to have a constructive debate with the Government on the NEET exam and the prevailing paper leak issue. "

" It is unfortunate that we weren’t allowed to do so in Parliament today. This is a serious concern that is causing anxiety to lakhs of families across India," the senior Congress leader said.

"We urge the Prime Minister to debate on this issue and give the students the respect they deserve," he said.

Meanwhile, Lok Sabha, the upper house of Parliament, has been adjourned till Monday after a ruckus broke out following the opposition leaders' demand for a discussion over the pot-boiling incidents of paperleaks in the NEET-UG.

Speaking to the media, Gandhi, a Congress MP, earlier in the day said, "Yesterday, a meeting of floor leaders of all opposition parties was held and it was agreed upon by all that the issue of NEET should be discussed in the House."

"I request the Prime Minister that this is a youth issue and it should be discussed in a proper manner. You should also join the discussion, because this is a youth issue. This message should go out from the Parliament that the Government and the Opposition of India are talking together about the students," he said.

However, both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned till 12 noon following a ruckus after Gandhi and Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge demanded the discussion in the respective Houses of Parliament.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said definite time will be given to the Opposition to raise the issue while Gandhi remained firm on speaking on it briefly in the beginning.

Meanwhile, the government is ready to answer any questions on the matter even if it comes up during the debate, NDTV reported quoting sources.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday carried out the first arrests in the NEET-UG paper leak case in Bihar, detaining two accused from Patna named Manish Kumar and Ashutosh.
