A political slugfest has erupted in Bihar over the NEET ‘paper leak’ controversy with both Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) linking each other with the prime accused of the case. After Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Vijay Kumar Sinha claimed that one of the prime suspects, Sikander Prasad Yadvendu, is linked to Tejashwi Yadav’s personal secretary (PS), the RJD has hit back with a photo of another accused, Amit Anand, with Deputy Chief Minister Samrat Choudhary.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav also defended his PS and said the BJP wants to divert people’s attention from the ‘masterminds’.

“The INDIA alliance is united on this issue. We want the NEET exam to be immediately cancelled…They (BJP) have all the investigation agencies, they can call the PS or PA anyone for a probe…They want to divert the issue from the kingpin…Those who want to drag my name or my PA’s name, this will not benefit anyone…The engineer who is talked about could be a beneficiary but Amit Anand and Nitish Kumar are the masterminds of the paper leak. The people of the country know that whenever BJP comes to power, then paper leaks happen.”

The official X handle of RJD also shared a picture of Dy CM Choudhary being allegedly felicitated by the accused.

“The main accused in the NEET exam paper leak scam with the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar,” RJD said in the post.

“The so called powerful minister who was felicitated by the accused has deleted all his photos with him from his social media handles, but don’t worry, we have them all. Send this to your worried counterparts the other Deputy Chief Minister,” the party added.

BJP’s Allegations

This comes a day after Bihar’s other Dy CM Vijay Kumar Sinha on Thursday claimed that one of the arrested accused, an engineer, is linked to Tejashwi Yadav’s PS, and demanded an investigation into it.

Sinha claimed that the official was in constant touch with Sikander Prasad Yadvendu, the arrested prime accused in the case.

“The official associated with Yadav used to arrange accommodation for Sikandar at guest houses in Patna and other places. I have details of messages which the official had sent to the persons concerned for arranging accommodation for Sikandar,” the deputy chief minister said.

He said he had the mobile number from which those messages were sent.

Sinha said, “It needs to be thoroughly probed. Why is the RJD leader (Tejashwi Prasad) maintaining a stoic silence on this?”

The Economic Offences Wing of Bihar Police had last month arrested 13 people as part of its investigation into the alleged paper leak in the Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Undergraduate) or NEET-UG 2024.

The arrested accused included six examination mafias, four students and three parents.
