What did Kapil Sibal say?

Meanwhile, Congress leader Kapil Sibal wrote a post on Instagram taking a dig at PM Modi. In which he questioned PM Modi's silence and wrote- NEET exam, Gujarat factor, open corruption, open rigging, please note: Modiji's 'NEET' (pure) silence.

Let us tell you that the Center and the National Examination Agency (NTA) told the Supreme Court on Thursday that they have canceled the grace marks given to 1,563 candidates who appeared in the examination for admission to MBBS and other such courses. The Center had said that they would have the option of either re-taking the exam or giving up the grace marks given for loss of time. Opposition MPs are attacking the government on this issue and demanding justice for the students. Intensifying the attack on the government on the NEET-Graduate Examination issue, the Congress on Friday questioned Modi's 'silence' on the matter and said that only a forensic investigation under the supervision of the Supreme Court can protect the future of lakhs of young students.

Meanwhile, Congress media chief Pawan Khera termed NEET as Vyapam scam number 2 and said that the Modi government should order an independent forensic investigation of the NEET scam under the supervision of the Supreme Court. Congress tried to corner PM Modi as well as Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. Khera called Pradhan's statement on NEET not only shameful but also rubbed salt on the wounds of the students. Khera said that PM Modi cannot always remain a mute spectator. Why is he silent when the future of 24 lakh youth is at stake?
