New Delhi, June 29, 2024 — Parliament is set for a stormy session today as both houses, Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha, reconvene to address pressing national issues, with the alleged NEET-UG paper leak expected to dominate the discussions.

The proceedings of both houses were adjourned on Friday following a tumultuous session marked by the Opposition INDIA bloc’s vociferous demands for a dedicated debate on the NEET-UG issue. The adjournment came as members protested and insisted on prioritizing the discussion on the alleged irregularities in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Undergraduate (NEET-UG).

NEET-UG Controversy: The Core of the Debate

Conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on May 5, the NEET-UG 2024 saw around 24 lakh candidates appear for the examination. The results, announced on June 4, have been mired in controversy with allegations of question paper leaks and other significant irregularities surfacing soon after. The scandal has sparked outrage among students, parents, and political leaders alike, leading to demands for a thorough investigation and accountability.

Today’s Proceedings

When Parliament reconvenes at 11 am today, the NEET-UG issue is expected to take center stage. Opposition members from the INDIA bloc have been persistent in their calls for an extensive debate, underscoring the importance of maintaining the integrity of the nation’s education system.

In the Lok Sabha, BJP MP Anurag Thakur is slated to initiate the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address. This session is particularly noteworthy as it marks the first sitting of Parliament following the constitution of the 18th Lok Sabha. Thakur’s speech is anticipated to cover a range of topics, but the NEET-UG controversy is likely to be a focal point, given the current public and political climate.

Background and Implications

The NEET-UG examination is a critical gateway for students aspiring to pursue undergraduate medical courses across India. The integrity of such an examination is paramount, and any compromise can have far-reaching implications on students’ futures and the credibility of the educational institutions involved.

The alleged leaks and irregularities have raised serious concerns about the examination’s conduct and the measures in place to prevent such breaches. The Opposition’s insistence on a dedicated discussion reflects the urgency of addressing these concerns to restore public confidence in the system.

What to Expect

Today’s session is likely to be charged with intense debates and demands for action. The Opposition is expected to press for specific details about the investigation into the NEET-UG irregularities, accountability measures, and steps to prevent future occurrences.

The ruling party, on the other hand, will aim to navigate the discussion while highlighting the government’s broader achievements and plans as outlined in the President’s Address. The debate on the Motion of Thanks will provide a platform for both sides to present their perspectives and for the government to respond to the allegations.


As Parliament gears up for what promises to be a crucial session, all eyes will be on how the NEET-UG issue is addressed. The outcome of today’s discussions could have significant implications for the education sector and the political landscape.

Stay tuned for live updates and in-depth coverage of the Parliament session as the nation’s lawmakers deliberate on this critical issue.
