All medical admissions in the state will be based on 12th grade students.
The Tamil Nadu government has tabled a motion in the state assembly seeking exemption from NEET examination. CMMK asked Stalin’s opposition parties (AIADMK) to support the resolution. “Today, I have tabled a resolution against NEET. You (AIADMK) have also come up with this resolution. I urge the opposition parties to increase their support for this resolution,” he said. .
Meanwhile, AIADMK has assured the government to support the NEET resolution. Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami said, “Students did not prepare well for the exams because the DMK-government said NEET would be scrapped. We have decided to go out in protest. We will support the NEET resolution.”
“Students and their parents were completely confused about conducting NEET exams here. The DMK government has no clear position on NEET. Yesterday, a student, Danush committed suicide,” the AIADMK leader said.
Earlier, the Madras High Court had directed the BJP’s Tamil Nadu state general secretary K.S. Nagrajan dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL), alleging that the formation of a committee to investigate the impact of the NEET violated the Supreme Court order. The first bench of the Madras High Court, comprising Chief Justice Sanjeev Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamurthy, ruled that “the formation of a committee was entirely within the purview of the elected administration and not the extent of disobedience.”
