“India is the youngest country in the world. We have the largest youth population. Instead of making these youth skilled and capable, the BJP government is making them weak,” she alleged.

“Children wait years for a vacancy. When a vacancy comes up, there is the cost of filling the form, the cost of taking the exam, and ultimately the entire effort is wasted due to corruption. The corruption of the BJP is weakening the country,” she added.

Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had on Thursday attacked the Center over the alleged irregularities in NEET and leakage of exam papers. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a “psychological breakdown” after the elections and will now struggle to lead the government.

He also said that the main reason for paper leaks was that educational institutions had been seized by the BJP and its parent organization RSS. He claimed that paper leakage will not stop unless it is reversed.
