Protests Outside Education Minister's Home By Youth Congress

The Youth Congress on Thursday protested outside Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan's residence in New Delhi, citing discrepancies in the conduct of NEET and NET examinations. They demanded the examinations be cancelled promptly to ensure justice for the lakhs of students affected.

Youth Congress National President Srinivas BV alleged that the exam "scam" not only cheats students but also betrays the country's future. He accused Pradhan of misleading the nation despite knowing that the NEET paper was not leaked.

"Dharmendra Pradhan should not only resign but also face rigorous questioning. There is no exam in the country without rigging. Students are expressing their frustrations on social media - 'Once again, government leakage'," he stated.

Youth Congress National Secretary Mohammed Shahid echoed concerns about "paper leaks, rigging, and corruption becoming commonplace in exams like NEET", questioning the National Testing Agency's integrity.

The Indian Youth Congress urged the central government to promptly review exam-related issues, resolve complaints, initiate Supreme Court-supervised investigations, and ensure justice for students.

During the protest, Delhi Police detained numerous Youth Congress workers.

Meanwhile, Minister Pradhan admitted the UGC-NET paper leak as an "institutional failure" of the NTA, announcing a high-level committee to recommend reforms. He was reassured by addressing concerns of deserving NEET candidates who succeeded through hard work.

The Union Minister added, isolated incidents of malpractices should not affect lakhs of students who cleared the examination rightfully.

At a press conference here, Pradhan also appealed to the opposition parties not to politicize the issue and said strict action would be taken against those found guilty, including "top" officials of the NTA.
