Congress party has hit out at the National Testing Agency (NTA) claiming it has betrayed the candidates for CUET by allotting exam centers outside J&K which has put the poor parents to great hardships and large numbers would not be able to sit in the examination. 

Reacting Strongly to the allotments of examination centers to the candidates outside Jammu and Kashmir, against the public  commitment by NTA to allot centers locally, J&K Congress has lashed out at the NTA and the centre government and LG administration for the hardships being faced by Jammu children and their parents. 


Thousands of children and their parents are on tenterhooks especially in Jammu region who have been allotted centers in Punjab and other states. It will deprive large number of poor students to drop out and would not pursue graduate level studies, Congress spokesperson Ravinder Sharma said. 

“The BJP government made the Jammu university and Kashmir university to voluntarily join  CUET, which was meant for 44 central universities and other universities to participate. BJP wanted outside students to come and study in Jammu at the cost of local students. Nobody would go to Kashmir in the situation and Jammu children shall be at loss” Sharma said.
