Since the number of cases of COVID second wave is increasing rapidly, NEET PG aspirants took to Twitter to demand postponement of PG exam using the hashtag, #postponeneetpg, for the campaign. Around 1.5 lakh COVID cases are being reported across India and a number of doctors have also tested positive. Aspirants believe that conducting NEET PG 2021 amid the COVID-19 second wave will put students at risk.
In support of NEET PG 2021 postponement, Srijan Pal Singh Kalam, advisor to former President, APJ Abdul Kalam tweeted: “We are seeing record numbers of COVID infections now, this will put a lot of risk & stress on 2 lakh candidates & their parents. @PMOIndia must consider postponing it by 2 weeks to save students. #postponeneetpg”.

In tweets addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi l, candidates requested that NEET PG 2021 not be postponed beyond May, but that it is held after the second wave of COVID-19 abates
@drharshvardhan @PMOIndia We are NOT asking to postpone beyond May. What we are requesting is to please conduct exam after the peak of the second wave subsides 2-3 weeks before result (May 31).
