The BJP today accused the Congress of doing "politics" over the issue of JEE-Mains and NEET exams, and said that the Modi government won't let the opposition party "spoil" students' future to find relevance.
Congress and various opposition parties have demanded that the examinations be deferred due to the COVID-19 pandemic and floods in parts of the country, even as the Union government has made it clear that they will be held as per schedule with due precautions.
"The Congress believes students must lose a year so it doesn''t lose an opportunity for politics. Over 85% #JEENEET candidates don''t agree and have downloaded admit cards. The Modi government won''t let Congress spoil students'' future to find relevance," BJP general secretary Bhupender Yadav said.
While the NEET is slated to be held on September 13, engineering entrance exam JEE-Mains is scheduled between September 1-6. Around 9.53 lakh candidates have registered for JEE-Mains and 15.97 lakh students have registered for NEET.
