The coordination committee of candidates who appeared for this year’s National Eligibility Test (NET) of the University Grants Commission, which allegedly altered the test’s qualification norms after announcing its result, has sought the intervention of political leaders, including MPs from the State, to solve the issue with a sympathetic attitude to the candidates, who are aggrieved by the “arbitrary and insensitive” decision of the commission.

“People’s representatives, including MPs from the State, should break their silence to find an amicable solution for the problem,” said a release here on Monday.
