Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav has raised serious allegations of rigging in the graduate-level medical entrance examination, NEET, calling for the court to take suo motu cognizance and initiate an exhaustive investigation. Yadav insists that stringent punishments should be meted out to those found guilty.

The NEET results, declared on June 4, showed an unusually high number of candidates scoring 100% marks, which Yadav argues points to widespread malpractices. He expressed concerns over the integrity of the examination system on the social media platform 'X'.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of turning exams into a business of question paper leaks and fake candidates, emphasizing that recurring recruitment exam scams have disillusioned the nation's youth, signaling a long-term issue for India's future. Yadav urged the Supreme Court to act decisively to restore faith in the examination process.
