Before the exams, why is #OperationNEET trending on Twitter? Here’s all you need to know

#OperationNEET: All speculations were laid to rest after National Testing Agency (NTA) Director-General Vineet Joshi asked students to not believe such ‘fake’ reports.  

NEET-UG 2021: Despite requests from a section of students to postpone the NEET-UG 2021 exam, the entrance test for admission to the MBBS and BDS programs will be held on September 12 following COVID-19 protocols. However, before the crucial test, rumors of leaked question papers emerged, leaving thousands of medical aspirants furious.

Notably, a news channel had carried out an alleged “sting operation” in which a cheating mafia was seen dealing with NEET issues. In the two-hour explosive sting, #OperationNEET, the news channel alleged that the cheating mafia demanded 25-30 lakhs for an SC-ST seat and 60-70 lakhs for a general category seat in government medical colleges or private. However, the channel does not “confirm” its claims.

Following this, the Federation of Indian Students (AISF), the National Union of Indian Students (NSUI), and others took to Twitter and called for a high-level investigation into the matter using the hashtag #OperationNEET.

“The #OperationNEET report is indeed serious, we cannot allow the education mafia to exploit the systematic loopholes leaving lakhs of marginalized students vulnerable, Dharmendra Pradhan must address the issue and constitute a high-level investigation committee after validating the reports as soon as possible, “tweeted ISAF.

Echoing similar remarks, NSUI said, “The things that are happening in #OperationNEET are very serious, as we can see that the seats are being sold at high rates. This is the complete failure of Modi Govt, the way Govt is playing with the future of Lakh of the students is really shameful. We demand a high-level investigation into this matter.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also attacked the government led by Narendra Modi. He said: “Documents on Neet have leaked and places have been sold at high rates #OperationNEET Meanwhile, students who are financially struggling and working hard. #ModiHaiToFailureHai.

Later, all speculation was ruled out after National Testing Agency (NTA) Managing Director Vineet Joshi urged students not to believe such “fake” reports.

“This is a fake. Students are advised not to believe such news,” Joshi said, quoted by India TV Digital.
