In the letter, he wrote, ‘I am requesting the suspension of NEET and JEE exams due to the epidemic corona virus. In Orissa, there are about 50,000 candidates in JEE Main and about 40,000 in NEET. But in the meantime, the National Examination Agency has set up examination centers in only 6 cities in the state. In this situation, it is not safe for children to go to the test center.

He added that lockdowns were also taking place in many areas due to the epidemic, and transportation had not yet been restored. And many of our examinees have to come to the examination center from far and wide. So I am requesting to postpone the test. If it is possible to set up test centers in 30 districts and it does not take much time for children to travel, then it can be considered.
