NEET, JEE 2020: Sonu Sood Requests Govt To Postpone Exam
Migrants’ messiah Sonu Sood has now taken up the NEET and JEE Mains examination issue and has called for its postponement on Twitter.
On Tuesday (August 25), Bollywood actor Sonu Sood urged the government to take steps for postponing the Joint Entrance Exam-Main (JEE) and the National Eligibility cun Entrance Test (NEET) examinations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Taking to Twitter, the ‘messiah’ of migrant labourers said, “It’s my request to the government of India, to postpone the #NEET/#JEE exams in the current situation of the country! In the given #COVID19 situation, we should care utmost and not risk the lives of students!” It has become a major issue as thousands of students and parents are worried.
Earlier on Tuesday, environmental activist Greta Thunberg also stepped forward in support of students demanding postponement of the nationwide JEE Mains and NEET 2020 exams. The teen girl, popularly known for her “How dare you?” speech at the UN Climate Action Summit, in her Twitter post, said, “It’s deeply unfair that students of India are asked to sit national exams during the COVID-19 pandemic and while millions have also been impacted by the extreme floods. I stand with their call to postpone JEE and NEET in COVID-19.”
