Rahul Gandhi’s Mic Goes Off as He Raises NEET Issue in Lok Sabha, Alleges Congress


NEW DELHI — The Congress party has alleged that Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi was ‘silenced’ during a Lok Sabha session on Friday when his microphone was turned off as he began discussing the NEET issue.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned until 12 noon following a commotion from Opposition members who demanded a discussion on alleged NEET irregularities. The Congress accused Speaker Om Birla of preventing Rahul Gandhi from speaking on the matter, stating on social media that his microphone was cut off, reported Vartha Bharati.

On its Instagram account, the Congress claimed that while Prime Minister Narendra Modi has yet to address the education-related concerns troubling the nation, Rahul Gandhi attempted to voice the concerns of the youth in the Lok Sabha. The party asserted that despite the seriousness of the NEET issue, Gandhi’s microphone was switched off.

The Congress described the incident as an attempt to suppress the youth’s voice. The Kerala unit of the party questioned the Speaker’s actions on its ‘X’ account, and MP Deepender Singh Hooda expressed anger over the situation, demanding an immediate discussion on the issue.

Social media users supported the Congress’s stance, urging the Speaker to allow the Opposition to raise youth-related concerns. One user even challenged Speaker Birla to cut off PM Modi’s microphone in a similar manner.
