Tanuja Karregowda from Shikaripura in Shivamogga district has appeared for the exam in Basavanagudi centre in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Earlier in September was unable to appear for exams as her house was in containment zone. Responding to the students’ plea CM and Minister have intervened to clear the obstacles for her to appear for the exam.
How it Happened?
Tanuja a student of Navodaya School in Shivamogga is ambitious to become a doctor. Her father Mr.Nagaraj is a farmer. He has struggled hard to ensure quality education to his daughter. She was also selected for Navodaya coaching at Pune. NEET exams were held on September 13. But Tanuja’s home was declared as containment zone and was sealed during that time. Tanuja was also suffering from fever that time and she could not attend the exams. NTA reconducted the exams as per Supreme Court’s direction. But this time she had to send certain documents through e-mail.
But due to some technical glitches and due to Covid restrictions, she could not send the documents in time. She was about to lose the opportunity to appear in exams, which she has posted in the social media. Chief Minister B.S.Yediyurappa and Minister Dr.Sudhakar immediately intervened and spoke to the officials to allow her to appear in the exams.
Delighted by this development her mother expressed her gratitude and said – “We were worried that Tanuja not able to write the exam, but the CM and the Minister intervened at right time and gave her a chance to fulfil her dreams. Examination agency has told that she could not take the NEET exam as she has failed to submit the documents in time. I am thankful to the Chief Minister and Dr.Sudhakar for this kind gesture”
“I have an ambition to serve the society as a surgeon. I have done well in the exam without any stress, I am thankful to the Chief Minister and Minister Sudhakar,” saidTanuja (the student).
