Bengaluru: Union minister DV Sadananda Gowda has written to senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar seeking respite for over 500 students, who were unable to take up the NEET exam due to delayed arrival of the Hampi Express.
Gowda, in his letter, said that due to change in examination centres and the late arrival of the Hampi Express, as many as 500 students couldn’t write the exam. Gowda also said that the National Testing Authority should have given vide publicity regarding the change in examination centre and should have intimated the students well in advance. This could have averted the situation, he added.
Sadananda Gowda wrote seeking an opportunity for the missing students to be able to take up the exam.
