Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday asked government to postpone the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), alleging that the latter is 'blind' to students' distress.
Rahul also urged the government to let the students "have a fair chance" in the exams.
"GOI is blind to students' distress. Postpone NEET exam. Let them have a fair chance," he tweeted.
The former Congress chief's remarks come a day after the Supreme Court refused to defer the NEET-UG examination scheduled for September 12, saying it does not want to interfere with the process and it will be "very unfair" to reschedule it.
The advocate for the petitioners argued that medical entrance exam NEET-UG 2021 be deferred as many other examinations are scheduled around September 12.
