Shashi Tharoor Calls for NEET-PG Exam Postponement

Shashi Tharoor, a Congress Member of Parliament from Kerala, has requested the central government to delay the NEET-PG exam, which is scheduled for June 23. He cited the extreme heat conditions in northern India and issues with the recent NEET-UG exam as reasons for this postponement.

Tharoor expressed his concerns on social media, stating, "Given the allegations surrounding the conduct of NEET-UG exams, I urge the Government to postpone NEET-PG scheduled on June 23rd."

He further highlighted the challenges faced by students from southern states, particularly Kerala, due to the limited availability of exam centers. "As an MP from Kerala, I must point out that due to the shortage of seats in examination centres here, hundreds of people from the Southern states of India are forced to come North to take this exam," Tharoor wrote.

He also emphasized the risks posed by the ongoing severe heatwave in northern India, which has claimed over 100 lives and caused around 40,000 suspected heatstroke cases in the past three months. "The current severe heatwave situation in the North, which has taken the lives of over 100 people in the last 3 months, and resulted in some 40,000 suspected heatstroke cases, puts these students unnecessarily at risk," Tharoor added.
