Shah Faesal seeks NEET centres in Valley

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) chief Shah Faesal on Saturday sought allotment of the NEET centres in in the valley and has sought personal intervention of Director General, National Testing Authority (NTA) and HRD Minister Prakash Javedkar to arrange adequate number of examination centres in Kashmir for aspirants.
In a statement, he said that it will be very inconvenient for the valley based students to travel to outside state and spend money on accommodation if their examination centres are not arranged locally.
“NEET aspirants from the Kashmir will be put to inconvenience if their examination centres are not arranged locally due to the dilapidated Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, which remains frequently disrupted and skyrocketing airfares from Srinagar,” Faesal said, adding, “After Pulwama attack, it has become very difficult for Kashmiri students to get accommodation in other states. This factor needs to be kept in mind.”
He further said that last year some candidates missed the NEET examination as they could not reach to their allotted centres outside the state due continued closure of the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway and disruption in the air traffic due to bad weather.
