Hemant asks Union edu min to defer NEET, JEE | Ranchi News

Ranchi: Chief minister Hemant Soren on Thursday evening urged Union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal to defer the scheduled NEET and JEE exams.
In a letter, Soren urged Pokhriyal to postpone the exams in public interest as holding these exams will require public transport and hotels, restaurants and lodges to function because of the movement of a large number of aspirants. “As a part of its strategy to combat Covid-19, the Jharkhand government has not commenced public transport and neither hotels, restaurants and lodges. The examinees and their parents will face logistical issues,” he wrote.
Soren also pointed out that aspirants may hail from containment zones, which will make it difficult for them to reach exam centres. There may also be candidates who might be Covid-19 infected, which will put other aspirants and invigilators at risk, the chief minister said.
