With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s roadshow in Bengaluru on the day of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) on Sunday (May 7), many students are worried about how they will reach their exam centre.

Around 1.9 lakh students from the state are scheduled to write NEET on Sunday and many of them will appear in Bengaluru

The exam is scheduled between 2 PM to 5.20 PM Due to various checks before the exam, candidates are generally advised to reach the center one hour before the commencement of the exam. If restrictions are imposed on the movement of traffic in the morning, their movement to the center will be difficult, while making the planning process (arriving) more complex. Mr. Modi’s roadshow is between 10 am to 1.30 pm

The BJP, however, said it is in talks with the police and other authorities to ensure that the show does not inconvenience students, according to Annamalai, the party’s co-in-charge for the Karnataka elections.

“We are working on ways to prevent inconvenience to NEET students keeping in mind that students have to travel long distances from their homes to reach the exam centres. Union HRD Minister Dharmendra Pradhan himself is coordinating these efforts,” said Mr. Annamalai Hindu,
