Jaipur: The Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot has voiced concern over the safety of students from the state stranded in violence-hit Manipur.

Manipur is witnessing violent clashes over a move to grant scheduled tribe status to the majority Metei community in the state. Naga and Kuki tribes who are opposing this plan organised a 'Tribal Solidarity March' on Wednesday after which the clashes broke out.

Gehlot on Saturday said that top officials of his government are in touch with officials in the northeastern state.

"The news of some students of Rajasthan being trapped in Manipur violence is worrying," he said in a tweet in Hindi.

"The chief secretary and the director general of police of Rajasthan are in touch with senior officials there and soon efforts will be made to bring them home safely," the chief minister added.

Earlier, the MoS Education, Union Government, Dr Rajkumar Ranjan Singh requested the NTA to reschedule or postpone the NEET exam 2023 for various centres in the state as students will not be able to take NEET UG which is scheduled for today under the current circumstances and broadband and internet connectivity issues.
