Terming the Narendra Modi Government’s obnoxious ordinance on National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) as a direct attack on judiciary and yet another move of anti-Jammu BJP to barter legitimate interests of people of Jammu province, convenor of Jammu for India (JFI), Prof Hari Om, on Saturday said that the ordinance, if given an effect to, will deprive about 5000 talented Jammu youth of their due share in the medical and dental colleges located in J&K.
“The ordinance is a conspiracy hatched by the Modi Government and PDP-BJP coalition government against the apex court and talented youth of the country, including Jammu youth,” said the JFI convenor.
President of India Pranab Mukharjee must reject the ordinance as it is designed to kill talent, promote and mediocrity and further jeopardize the interests of the already rather ignored Jammu youth, said Prof Hari Om.
“By bringing obnoxious ordinance on NEET, the Modi Government has not only upturned the April 28 historic judgment of Supreme Court on one common entrance test across the country for admission to MBBS and BDS courses, but also stabbed the Jammu’s talented youth from the back. The verdict of the apex court had been welcomed by people of Jammu province. They had expressed the view that the Jammu youth, which never got their due share in the professional and technical institutions in J&K, especially MBBS and BDS colleges, will get a fair opportunity to prove their worth and academic excellence if J&K was brought under the ambit of NEET. But the separatist-friendly Modi-Government on Friday dashed all their hopes to the ground,” said the JFI convenor in an emergency press conference held here today, adding that BJP issued the ordinance only to appease separatists and communalists in Kashmir.
The JFI convenor appealed to the people of Jammu province to stand up and fight out the rabidly anti-Jammu BJP and the Delhi Darbar, saying that their real enemy is the Indian political class and that they will get completely destroyed in case they remained dormant or devoid of political activity any longer.
Others present during the press conference included Dheeraj Pargal, Devendra Choudhary, Dr Ajay Chrungoo, Sham Lal Bassan, Advo Pushpinder Singh, Dr Agnishekhar, Ajatshatru Sinh Jamwal, Ashok Kumar and Rajesh Dutta.
