Standing upto their promise, the members of the TMC and AIADMKvoiced the great plight of medical aspirants from West Bengal and Tamil Nadu this year due to different questions papers given to students who attempted the NEET on May 7 in the Rajya Sabha.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was conducted in 10 languages , including Bengali, Tamil and Gujarati.

TMC’s Derek O’Brien raised the issue during the Zero Hour. He argued that till 2013, all question in all regional languages was a translation of the English copy, when it is the case of NEET. This year, however, those who attempted the exam in Bengali or Tamil complained that the question paper was entirely a different piece of work that the English one, he said, continuing to emphasize that 40,000 of the 56,000 of those who approached the exam in Bengali or Tamil have scored hard-to accept results. He pointed out that the HRD Ministry has a lot in its hand to provide explanation for.

O’Brien said, “NEET exam is not a West Bengal issue. It is a federal issue.” He got support from the AIADMK members who demanded to scrap the applicability of NEET over Tamil Nadu. Navaneethakrishnan (AIADMK) demanded that first, a uniform NEET syllabus should be introduced.

The TMC along with the AIADMK members have relentlessly been waiting for the government to respond, and yet, no word sneaks from the treasury benches and compelled them to rush into the Well of the House to raise anti-NEET slogans.

In a response to the issue, Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda claimed that the government is looking over the issue. Post this, members returned to their seats and the house went back to functioning normally.

The Union minister of Human Resource Development  Prakash Javadekar yesterday declared that the question papers in vernacular languages will be a mere translation of the question papers in English, trying to settle the matter in hand.
