Odisha urges Centre to conduct NEET in Odia
None, 02 Jan 2017, #NEET

After the Centre decided to conduct National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 in six vernacular languages apart from Hindi and English, the Odisha government has demanded inclusion of Odia as one of the regional languages in which the test is to be held.

In a letter to the Centre, Odisha CM, Naveen Patnaik said that the move is disadvantageous for students from the state who have studied in Odia medium, and has thus created resentment among them. “I am constrained to seek the Prime Minister’s personal intervention in the matter incorporating Odia as a medium of examination in NEET, in the larger interests of the students of my state,” the CM was quoted as saying to a National Daily.
