Chandigarh, June 20

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab lambasted the BJP government for jeopardizing the future of 24 lakh students who appeared in NTA NEET this year on May 5th. The party appealed to the Supreme Court to form an SIT to investigate this matter and demanded the strictest action against everyone involved.

In a press conference at the party office on Thursday, AAP spokesperson Bikram Jit Passi raised questions about the question paper leaks, result date, grace marks and on the silence of NTA (National Testing Agency) on the matter. The AAP leader said that we cannot afford the silence of anyone on this matter, it is about the future of 24 lakh students, this matter cannot be taken lightly. He was accompanied by Advocate Inderjit Singh and Gagandeep Singh in this press conference.

Addressing the media Bikram Jit Passi said that NEET exam was conducted on May 5th and it’s result was scheduled for June 14th but the NTA declared its result on June 4th amidst the chaos of general elections results on the same day. They announced 67 students as toppers with 720/720 marks. Then there were students who got 719, 718, 717 etc. marks, which is impossible. In this exam a candidate is awarded 4 marks for a right answer, there is negative marking too, 1 mark deducted for a wrong answer. So there can be 715, 710, 705 and so on marks but not 719, 718, 717 etc. They tried to justify wrong marking by saying it was grace marks but they never publicly explained the basis and rules for grace marks. These students work hard and study for 16-18 hours a day to clear such an exam, NTA cannot award grace marks to some selected students of their choice without transparent and previously mentioned process.

Passi said that some students had leaked question papers. Students have admitted that they had the exact same questionnaire before the exam but NTA, instead of addressing this properly, just released a press release that there was no paper leak. If that was true, why were arrests made in Bihar and Gujarat in this matter. Passi said that it seems that NTA is not working properly, they are under pressure from the BJP government.

Passi said that the BJP talks about implementing the Gujarat model in India, but in Gujarat 11 such papers were leaked in the last 11 years. Similarly in UP, paper leak is common. Everyone’s aware of Vyapam scam too. It appears that the BJP government is the paper leak government. They continuously jeopardize the present and future of lakhs of students and youth of our country. The BJP talks about being vishwaguru but they cannot even conduct an entrance exam without it getting leaked or rigged.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) appealed to the Supreme Court to form an SIT to investigate this scam thoroughly and demanded justice for 24 lakh students. The party said that these entrance exams are important and if corruption became rampant in these exams then the future of our youth will be in the dark. Passi also appealed to the media to do their part and speak up against such failures of the Modi government and demand answers from NTA so that our students and youth don’t face such crises time and again.
