Nagaland Congress leaders and activists took to the streets outside Congress Bhavan in Kohima on June 21, protesting against alleged irregularities in the UGC-NET 2024 examination conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).


Brandishing placards and banners, Congress members gathered to demand accountability from the NTA and others implicated in what they claim are irregularities affecting the integrity of the UGC-NET exam. Meshenlo Kath, Co-chairman of the Public Grievance Department of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee, expressed deep concerns over the situation, questioning the efficacy of actions taken under the Modi government and their impact on the nation’s students, according to PTI reports.

The protest follows earlier assurances from Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan regarding a thorough investigation into alleged irregularities during the NEET exam in Bihar. Pradhan emphasized the government’s commitment to transparency and safeguarding the interests of students.

“We are in touch with the Bihar government regarding the NEET exam,” Pradhan stated during a press conference. “We are receiving some information from Patna. The police are investigating, and a detailed report will be submitted to them. Following credible information, strict action will be taken against the guilty.”

The NEET exam is crucial for aspiring medical students across India, and recent reports of potential misconduct have sparked nationwide concern.
