New Delhi: The students, who have been been staging a sit-in at the Jantar Mantar here against the irregularities in NTA held examinations -- NEET UG, PG, and UGC NET, have called for a march towards the Parliament on Tuesday to press their demands.

The indefinite sit-in strike of the protesting students entered the sixth day on Monday.

Scores of students under the banner "India against NTA" gathered at the protest site to continue their agitation against alleged rigging in the said examinations, which started last week on Wednesday.

The students called-off their protest for the day after holding a demonstration and reiterated their demands, which include banning of the NTA and Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan's resignation.

The students also demanded re-examination of NEET-UG for all and reinstate the old university specific entrance exam system.

On the sixth day of the strike, the students gathered at the Jantar Mantar and raised "anti-NTA" slogans also demanding Pradhan's resignation.

They called off their indefinite sit-in for the day and gave a call for march towards the Parliament on Tuesday.
