Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Sagarika Ghose on Friday said the spate of paper leaks had exposed the “deficit” of the Narendra Modi government. She also said Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan's decision to announce a high-level committee to probe the functioning of the National Testing Agency (NTA) was not good enough.

“The education minister has announced that a committee will be set up to investigate the working of the National Testing Agency (NTA). This is simply not good enough. Why aren't heads rolling? Who is responsible for these paper leaks? Who is the Modi government protecting?” Ghose said.

She further claimed, “The governance deficit of the Modi-led government has been cruelly exposed by the spate of document leaks related to the major all-India competitive exams. Over 70 papers have been leaked in the last seven years.” She noted that the papers for NEET-UG exam were leaked and the exam for UGC-Net exam was also cancelled due to it being leaked through the darknet. In a post on X, Ghosh said, “Shri @narendramodi spends taxpayers' money on organizing 'Pariksha pe charcha' event but cannot conduct a single proper Pariksha. Over 70 papers have been leaked in the last seven years. @narendramodi-led government has betrayed India's youth by failing to conduct national competitive exams.”

She further stated, “NOT good enough Mr. Education Minister @dpradhanbjp. STOP PLAYING WITH STUDENTS' LIVES AND FUTURE. The committee is not good enough. Why aren't heads rolling? Chronology: First @dpradhanbjp calls the protests 'motivated'; then he admits there might be 'problems' in some centres; now he says the National Testing Agency system is being reviewed by a committee. WHO ARE YOU PROTECTING Mr. Minister? Your actions are not that #NEET.” The Union Education Ministry cancelled the University Grants Commission–National Eligibility Test (NET) on June 19 following concerns over the

Audit integrity.

The UGC-NET 2024 was scheduled to be conducted on June 18 in 317 cities. The cancellation of the UGC-NET came amid ongoing controversy over alleged irregularities in the Medical Entrance Examination (NEET). Both exams are conducted by the National Testing

Agency (NTA).
