The Congress on Friday held a demonstration addressing the alleged irregularities in the NEET-UG 2024 exam, calling for a probe overseen by a sitting Supreme Court judge.

Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, also the Ludhiana MP, spearheaded the state unit's protest against these alleged irregularities in the medical entrance exam.

In addition, Chandigarh Youth Congress workers joined in, protesting against the purported issues surrounding the exam.

The NEET-UG examination, conducted on May 5 across 4,750 centers, saw participation from around 24 lakh candidates. Though results were expected by June 14, they were announced ten days early on June 4 due to faster evaluation.

Accusations of question paper leaks in states like Bihar and other irregularities have sparked widespread protests and numerous petitions in high courts and the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court emphasized that even "0.001 percent negligence" in conducting the NEET-UG 2024 exam should be thoroughly investigated.

Administered by the National Testing Agency, the NEET-UG examination is essential for admissions to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, and other medical courses across government and private institutions nationwide.
