BJP MP Varun Gandhi on Saturday took a swipe at the Uttar Pradesh government for neither postponing the Preliminary Eligibility Test (PET) nor making "adequate transport arrangements" for students to reach exam centres in flood-affected areas of the state.
"Ground realities are perhaps not visible from aerial surveys," he said, in an apparent dig at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who had recently surveyed the flood-hit areas. The Pilibhit MP said the state is in the "grip" of floods and over 37 lakh students are out to take the PET exam.
यूपी बाढ़ की चपेट में हैं और 37 लाख से अधिक छात्र PET की परीक्षा देने निकले हैं।— Varun Gandhi (@varungandhi80) October 15, 2022
प्रश्नपत्र हल करने से बड़ी चुनौती सेंटर तक पहुँचना है। छात्रों की निरंतर माँग के बाद भी ना परीक्षा टाली गयी ना यातायात के पुख्ता इंतजाम किए गए।

The Uttar Pradesh government in a tweet said, "Cheap domestic flights will start soon in 11 cities of the state." However, a student replied that the people in the state are not capable to travel by air, instead the state government should arrange bus and trains for these candidates.
श्रीमान जी पहले बस और ट्रेन की व्यवस्था हो क्योंकि यूपी की जनता इतनी सक्षम तो नहीं है क्यों हवाई यात्रा कर पाएगी उसके लिए ट्रेन ही सही है बस ही सही है pic.twitter.com/8o9ljYdmJP— PankajKrishna (@PankajK82379460) October 15, 2022
Sharing images of trains packed with candidates, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi said, "Candidates have been allotted exam centers that are 200-300 kilometers away from their city". Gandhi tweeted, “You will get goosebumps seeing the problems being faced by the students due to the huge chaos caused by the UP-PET exam. But, the BJP government is not even listening to their problems. The anti-youth government charges hefty fees from the youth for the examination, but is neither able to provide jobs, nor freedom from chaos.”
