Over 1.7 lakh people have responded so far to Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren’s call on Twitter, seeking students’ opinion on the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and the Joint Entrance Exams (JEE)-Main exams. More than 45,000 students are likely to participate in the upcoming exams across 40 centres in five cities.
Chief minister Soren took to Twitter last night and posted a poll, calling students’ to share their opinion over the NEET-JEE exams which are scheduled in September amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I want to particularly ask and seek feedback from all my young engineer and doctor friends. Will students face huge difficulties if #JEENEET exams are postponed?” Soren had tweeted.
People responded to the CM’s call, which seeks vote on any of three options – ‘Yes, No and Don’t Know’. The voting will come to an end on Sunday late night.
In another tweet, the CM said, “Tonight I’m worried & tensed as India continues to report over 75,000 Covid-19 cases every single day. Yet our union education minister @DrRPNishank ji (Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank) is not even remotely concerned about safety & health concerns of lakhs of students made to write #JEENEET exams in September.”
