NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday hit out at the Modi government over glitches in holding the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG, saying it was due to the incompetence and lack of preparedness of the ruling dispensation. "The Common University Entrance Test had to be cancelled in 13 centres today affecting close to 8,700 aspirants. This has been happening repeatedly under the excuse of 'unavoidable technical glitches'," he said on Twitter. "The real reason is sheer incompetence and lack of preparation by Modi Sarkar!," Ramesh added.
