Different voices coming from all directions against controversial NEET-JEE exam
A few days ago around four thousand students went on a hunger strike demanding the government to postpone the JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 exam. The movement was supported by political leaders including Congress’ Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, her Odisha counterpart Naveen Patnaik, DMK President MK Stalin, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who too requested the Central Government to cancel the exams.
Environmental and climate activist Greta Thunberg has also tweeted in support of the students requesting the government to postpone the upcoming JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 exams.
