NEET 2020 and JEE Mains: Subramanian Swamy to Write to PM Modi Regarding Postponement

Subramanian Swamy says that the Supreme Court order should not be an issue as the court has left the date to the government

Students’ plea on the postponement of NEET 2020 and JEE Mains has now managed to catch the attention of Subramanian Swamy, Rajya Sabha MP and National BJP executive member. Swamy says that he will write a letter to prime minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to postpone NEET 2020, JEE Mains and other similar examinations and hold them after Diwali.

“I have just spoken to the Minister of Education suggesting that NEET and other exams be conducted after Deepavali. The SC order the other day is not a bar since the Hon’ble Court has left the date to the government. I am sending an urgent letter to the PM just now,” tweeted Swamy.

Swamy said that he has also written to the Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal in this regard. “I have already tweeted as well as conveyed to the Education Minister that NEET 2020 exams should be after Deepavali. Minister is holding an emergency meeting. Let us see. I was asked to intervene by you all at a very late stage after SC had delivered its judgment,” he said while adding that when he said NEET 2020 exams postponement, he also meant the postponement of all similar entrance exams such as JEE Mains and so on.

The Supreme Court while hearing a petition filed by students for postponement of NEET 2020 and JEE Mains to be held in September had asked the National testing Agency to conduct the exams while taking all the necessary precautions.
