Pressing their demand for holding a re-examination for NEET-UG candidates following the recent fiasco over its results, student groups have called for a nation-wide school and college bandh on Thursday, July 4 .

National leaders of student groups, including the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) and Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU) have claimed that the NEET exam results were manipulated and therefore the recent exam should be cancelled and a re-examination must be held as it is affecting the future of 24 lakh applicants.

Addressing a press conference at LBG building here on Tuesday, SFI Secretary Ch Vinod and PDSU State President L Rajasekhar have requested the parents to make this school and college bandh successful. In the wake of student groups’ calls, the schools and colleges in both the Telugu states Andhra Pradesh and Telangana will announce the closure on July 4.
