Priyanka Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday called for an investigation into alleged irregularities in the NEET 2024 results to address “legitimate complaints.”

On her official X handle, Priyanka Gandhi stated, “First, the NEET exam paper was leaked, and now students are alleging a scam in the results. Serious questions are being raised over six students from the same center scoring 720 out of 720 marks, and various irregularities are coming to light.”

She expressed concern over the increasing suicide rates among students following the result announcement, describing the situation as “very sad and shocking.”

Priyanka criticised the administration for not taking adequate action regarding the paper leak issue, questioning why the government is ignoring the concerns of numerous students. “Students want answers to legitimate questions related to the rigging of the NEET exam results. Is it not the government’s responsibility to investigate and resolve these legitimate complaints?” she asked.

After the announcement of the entrance exam results, many aspirants and parents demanded an investigation, alleging irregularities and seeking clarification from the National Testing Agency (NTA) on how 67 candidates, including six from the same center, secured the top rank.

In response, the NTA denied these allegations, attributing the high scores to changes in the NCERT textbooks and the provision of grace marks for lost time at examination centers.
