Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday dismissed allegations of paper leaks or rigging in the NEET-UG medical entrance exam, stating that no substantive evidence supports these claims. Pradhan accused the opposition of spreading misinformation to create confusion among students.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced the NEET-UG results on June 4. In response to the allegations, Pradhan emphasized that all related facts are currently before the Supreme Court for consideration.

Pradhan criticized the political maneuvering around the issue, highlighting that it undermines students' mental peace and jeopardizes their future. His comments came as the NTA informed the Supreme Court about its decision to cancel previously awarded grace marks to 1,563 candidates, offering them a retest on June 23 instead.
