STATE TIMES NEWS SRINAGAR: CPI (M) leader M Y Tarigami on Sunday said that the National Testing Agency (NTA) must set up more NEET examination centers in Kashmir Valley and Ladakh region, as thousands of students have been allotted centers outside the State. “It becomes very difficult for Kashmiri students to travel to Delhi and other parts of the country to appear in the examinations. Every time, Valley students are left high and dry by not allocating any exam centre here,” he said in a statement issued here. “They would be put to lot of inconvenience if exam centers are not changed from outside State locations to Valley and Ladakh. In prevailing circumstances, students from the State are facing hostilities outside the State. The NEET centres for Kashmiri students should be arranged within the Valley as maximum number of students have been allotted centres outside Kashmir,” he demanded. “It will be very inconvenient for Kashmiri students to travel all the way and spend money on travel and accommodation in other States if their examination centres are not arranged here. This is a grave situation especially for students belonging to average income group, who cannot afford traveling and accommodation,” he said. “The dearth of NEET exam centres in Valley has deflated repeated claims of the Governor’s administration to have exam centres for all Valley students appearing in any national-level exams. The State Governor and Human Resources Development Ministry must take up the issue of arranging NEET examination centre in Kashmir and Ladakh regions for welfare of people,” CPI leader demanded.
