‘We raised exam concerns in parliament:gov takes no step’say Trade Union leaders.

Thousands of students appearing for their Joint Entrance Examination being conducted by National Testing Agencey,an autonomous body under the Human Resources Ministry,will find it difficult to reach examination centers ,across the country.
National Testing Agency (NTA) is conducting  Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) 2019 from January 6 to January 20.
The test will be conducted in online mode.
It is the first chance for engineering aspirants. The agency will conduct another examination in April,2019.
The general strike by trade unions on January 8 and 9 will definitely hit the JEE Main aspirants. Candidates will find it difficult to reach examination centers as rail,road transportation services would be affected.
It is first time NTA is conducting highly competitive entrance examinations including medical,engineering etc.
Earlier,these examinations were conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. (CBSE)
As we raised the exam concerns in the parliament during the discussion of  proposed two day national level general strike,organized by various trade unions, the government or concerned ministry simply ignored it,said CPI(M) leader Elamarom Kareem MP.He was talking to CNM in the wake of the strike.
Kareem said public transportation would definitely hit since all major trade unions support the strike.
He said train services also may be  affected because the organizers would demonstrate their protest in major railway stations.
In Kozhikode district there would be strike at  Vadakara,Koyilandy and Kozhikode stations.
Press,hospital and milk are exempted in the strike.
INTUC national Vice P resident  R.Chandrasekharanearlier stated that the 48 hour strike was scheduled far ahead and no government agency approached the unions,demanding change in their schedule
