“The entrance examination is going to be held throughout the country on Sunday 6 January, and scores of candidates from Kashmir have failed to reach Jammu due to inclement bad weather conditions. As NEET examination is a national level examination and can’t be postponed, it is therefore moral responsibility of the state government to arrange a morning flight for aspiring candidates on war footing basis,” a DAK statement said on Saturday.
DAK said that in case the govt fails in arranging air transport will for the aspirants, “it will mar the career of hundreds of Doctors who have burned their mid night oil to crack this prestigious exam and get admission in different post-graduation streams,” the statement added.
