Rahul Gandhi Urges Parliament for Special Discussion on NEET Irregularities


In a recent Lok Sabha session, Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi highlighted alleged irregularities in the NEET examination and called for a dedicated one-day discussion on the matter in Parliament.

Emphasizing the importance of the issue, the Congress leader said, “We want to send a message to students that the NEET issue is important for Parliament. To send this message, we want Parliament to discuss this.”

Gandhi’s plea was for an additional day to be allocated specifically for discussing NEET-related concerns. However, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla responded, stating, “You can give your suggestions, but I decide.”

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also addressed Gandhi’s demand, suggesting that any discussion should occur only after the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address. “Parliament proceedings are carried out based on some rules and traditions. I request the Opposition that any discussion should be done only after the Motion of Thanks on President’s address,” Singh remarked.

Following the Speaker’s refusal to accommodate Rahul Gandhi’s request, Opposition MPs staged a walkout from the Lok Sabha.
