NEET Paper Fiasco: Mamata Banerjee Demands Re-Exam


Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee regretted the way Bengali medium students were deprived in the national level single medical entrance examination and also instructed the health officials to follow up the issue.

Following the question paper fiasco in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), the Chief Minister had written to the Union Human Resource Development minister Prakash Javadekar, demanding a re-examination.

NEET was conducted across the country last Sunday. After the question paper fiasco came into light, Banerjee took up the issue with the Centre, urging it to look into the matter. There was a huge number of errors and ambiguity in the questions of NEET, which were translated into Bengali.

“Many of our students have been deprived in NEET. I have written a letter to the Centre as there were errors in the questions. The issue must be followed up. Bengali medium students cannot be deprived in this manner,” Banerjee said.
