There is a possibility of huge irregularities in NEET results, government should answer and ensure accountability: Surjewala

The Uncut

New Delhi. Congress General Secretary Randeep Surjewala on Thursday claimed that there is a possibility of huge irregularities in the results of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-Undergraduate (NEET-UG) conducted for admission to medical courses and this has affected the future of about 24 lakh students. He said that the National Examination Agency (NTA) and the government should answer and also ensure accountability in this matter. NTA had declared the results of NEET on June 4.

Surjewala said in a statement, “67 candidates got 720 out of 720 marks in NEET, that is, 100 percent marks. There are 67 toppers this year. This in itself seems ‘impossible’, because in the NEET question paper, marks are deducted for every wrong answer.” He questioned, “Is it possible that 67 people have given 100 percent correct answers? Is this a coincidence or an experiment?”

The Congress leader also raised questions about why the NEET result was declared on the day of counting of votes for the Lok Sabha elections? Surjewala claimed, “Another surprising thing is that the students from serial number 62 to 69 who topped NEET came from the same examination center in Faridabad, Haryana. Six of them got 720 marks out of 720 and two people got 718 and 719 marks out of 720.” He said, “This is a wonder in itself. Still NTA and Modi government are justifying it.” He said, “The apprehensions in this matter should be removed, the government should answer and ensure accountability.”
