The NEET paper leak controversy on Monday (July 1) stirred up a storm in Parliament, as opposition leaders demanded an urgent discussion on the issue right from the outset. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi spearheaded the demand in the Lok Sabha, pressing for a comprehensive debate throughout the day. Simultaneously, the Rajya Sabha witnessed similar fervor from opposition ranks, putting the government on the defensive.

However, the session took a heated turn when Congress MP Pramod Tiwari accused Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar of deliberately muting microphones, particularly those of Congress members. Enraged by the allegation, Dhankhar condemned Tiwari's remarks, terming them as baseless and unwarranted.

"We have taken decisive action against those responsible at the National Testing Agency (NTA), removing officials and assigning senior replacements. This underscores our commitment," Pradhan asserted. He urged the opposition to prioritize clarity over controversy in their discourse.
