People express rage after SC rejects deferment of NEET, JEE
New Delhi, Aug 18: Netizens all over the social media are expressing anger as the Apex Court has dismissed the plea for postponement of JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 stating life cannot be put on hold due to COVID-19 crisis.
During the hearing, Judge Arun Mishra said that "Life cannot be stopped. We have to move ahead with all safeguards".
Earlier, a group of students and parents filed the petition, demanding postponement of JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 entrance exams in SC due to coronavirus infection.
The Supreme Court stated that they cannot put the careers of the lakhs of students in jeopardy as the whole academic year is at stake.
Now, both JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 exams will be held as per the schedule announced by the NTA earlier.
Following are some tweets of anger:

This is not BJP's mistake. This is our mistake that we have elected illiterate & inhumanity people as our leaders.
Now, let they know the power of literate students in next election.
