Uproar in Lok Sabha over NEET, Rahul Gandhi’s mic muted

The Congress on Friday claimed that Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi's mic was turned off as he raised the NEET paper leak issue in the Lok Sabha.

The Congress shared a video on X, showing Rahul Gandhi requesting Speaker Om Birla for access to a microphone. Rahul Gandhi sought a debate on the NEET controversy and demanded a statement from the government.

In response, Speaker Om Birla clarified that he does not switch off the microphones of MPs and has no such control. "The discussion should be on the President's address. Other matters will not be recorded in the House," Birla said.

As the proceedings began, Congress MP KC Venugopal submitted an adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha to discuss the case of paper leaks. However, the Speaker said the House would discuss the Motion of Thanks to the President's address to Parliament.

As a ruckus erupted in the Lok Sabha, the Speaker adjourned the House till July 1.

Government sources said there was no tradition of bringing an adjournment motion during the Motion of Thanks to the President's address. "The opposition is making an unnecessary demand. The government is very much ready to speak on the issue of NEET," a source said.
