New Delhi: If the Narendra Modi-driven Government goes through forcing the NEET/JEE test now, it will be the giant mistake like ‘Nasbandi’ in 1976 that caused the downfall of Indira Gandhi’s government in 1977, said BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday.
His comments come in the midst of developing clamour for deferment of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) examinations, in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior on Sunday, he had listed 13 reasons behind the postponement of the medical and engineering entrance tests this year. He had expressed that since the exam centers are not in each district and what’s more numerous students have additionally been allotted far off centers. I myself have seen various students raising the issue of being allotted centers that are in excess of 500 KMs away. “These students with centers in various urban areas would need to arrive at that city at-least a day before which builds their susceptibility of getting infected”, Swamy attested.
