NEET Exam Scam: A Big Debate In Parliament

In the Lok Sabha, Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi criticized the BJP, accusing them of promoting "violence and hate," sparking protests from BJP members. Prime Minister Narendra Modi responded, stating that labeling Hindus as violent is serious. 

The session, resuming after an adjournment is set for heated debates on issues like the NEET exam controversy, the Agnipath scheme, inflation and unemployment.

BJP member Anurag Thakur began the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President's Address seconded by Bansuri Swaraj, Sushma Swaraj's daughter. 

The Lok Sabha allocated 16 hours for this debate concluding with PM Modi's reply on Tuesday while the Rajya Sabha set aside 21 hours with Modi's reply expected on Wednesday. 

The INDIA bloc intends to protest for a discussion on the NEET paper leak issue which was previously dismissed by Speaker Om Birla leading to Friday's adjournment in both houses due to opposition protests.
