Aspirants are upset as Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has dismissed their request for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) UG 2022 to be postponed.
Candidates have criticized the minister for allegedly "laughing at their hardships" and for equating a national exam with a monthly school exam. During Tuesday's education summit hosted by India Today, a question was posed to Pradhan, to which he responded, "Students are always anxious. All our senior principals are here, educationists are here; they face this problem every month.”
NEET aspirants have flooded twitter expressing their dissatisfaction with his comments:
