New Delhi: A fake tweet by Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has surfaced on Twitter amid demands by thousands of National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) - PG candidates and resident doctors to postpone the examination.

Many candidates have been asking for the exam to be postponed due to delays in their internship completion.

Candidates and resident doctors' associations also protested against the exam being conducted on March 5, 2023, at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.

"Young doctors saved our nation in the worst of circumstances during covid. It's time to listen to their demands. #PostponeNEETPG2023 or I will not be playing in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar trophy. @narendramodi," said the fake tweet by Kohli.
