NEET PG 2022: With only a few days left until the start of the NEET PG 2022 exam, thousands of medical aspirants are still fighting to postpone the exam from its scheduled date – May 21, 2022. To lobby for the same, a delegation from ABVP (Activists Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) met with Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Wednesday. A statement regarding the meeting was shared by the ABVP, via its official Twitter account.
In a press release, the ABVP indicates that it has discussed several points favorable to the postponement of the NEET PG 2022. Other officials from the health department were also present at the meeting regarding the postponement of the NEET PG 2022.
Although there was no official notification from the Ministry of Health, the ABVP said the discussion regarding the postponement of the NEET PG exam was positive.
“After this long discussion, a direction to the discussion is expected to relieve the candidates,” reads a press release from the ABVP.
Shortly after the meeting ended, ABVP National General Secretary Nidhi Tripathi said in a statement, “Our delegation mainly put forward six important points to the Union Minister and the officials recognized that these were major issues to focus on, so we are confident that these points will pave the way for decision and students will be relieved.”
The ABVP has also issued a memorandum to the Minister of Health, which includes a request to reopen the NEET PG 2022 registration process for one day. This would allow students who were initially allocated places but later canceled to register for the PG entrance exam.
The plea requesting the postponement of NEET PG 2022 was rejected by the Supreme Court last week. In its order, the High Court said any further postponement of the NEET PG exam would lead to ‘chaos’.
