State President, Shri Ram Sena, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajiv Mahajan hailed the Supreme Court for upholding its decision to hold entrance examination to medical courses—MBBS, BDS and MD—only through the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) in different States, including Jammu and Kashmir. Welcoming the decision, Rajiv Mahajan in a statement said that the Medical Council of India introduced NEET to eliminate multiple entrance exams, corruption and favouritism.
“Every year after the JKCET, there are allegation and counter allegation one division of J&K getting most of the medical seats. If NEET is implemented in the State, the allegation and the feeling of discrimination would literally wipe out. Since the seats would be open for all, the best students would win the seats,” he said. The concept of backdoor entry will be washed away, literally, he said adding that in a very important profession such as the medical one, the life of an individual is at stake. Since the controlling authorities would not be in Jammu and Kashmir, the backdoor entries would fail, he said.
“It is therefore crystal clear that conduct of NEET in no way will harm the interests of the students of Jammu and Kashmir state but will bring cheers to the hard working and deserving aspirants belonging to all the three regions of the State,” he asserted.
“NEET is a good beginning to introduce the doors of justice and equity for the students of J&K so that they can also get an opportunity to enter into the MBBS and BDS courses throughout the country which has been denied to them for several years,” he said.
