New Delhi: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Sunday said the government will bring a bill in the Legislative Assembly seeking a permanent exemption to the state from NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) tomorrow.
Taking to Twitter Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Sunday said that NEET is a major issue of the country and his government will bring a bill seeking an exemption to the state. “Another death on the altar of NEET. Let education be a qualification and let destroy qualifications alone for the education itself which is injustice. Tomorrow we will bring the Permanent Exemption Bill for NEET. Let us take NEET as an issue of the Indian subcontinent,” tweeted Stalin.
Earlier in the day, Stalin had said, “I am saddened to learn that a student Dhanush had ended his life due to fear of facing NEET exam. Our legal battle against NEET Examination begins now,” he said.
The teenager named Dhanush allegedly ended his life due to fear of not succeeding in the exam.
“The Union Government does not understand the difficulties created for students due to NEET exams,” Stalin said.
Earlier this week, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed the Centre for being “blind to student’s distress” after the Supreme Court refused to entertain a petition seeking appropriate directions and orders to the authorities concerned for rescheduling or deferring the NEET UG- 21.
“Government of India (GOI) is blind to students’ distress. Postpone #NEET exam. Let them have a fair chance,” tweeted the Congress MP.
NEET is the all-India level entrance examination for undergraduate medical courses.
