Tamil Nadu Adopts Proposal To Exempt Students From NEET

All medical admissions in the state will be based on students Class 12 grades.

Tamil Nadu Govt introduced a motion in the state Assembly requesting exemption from the NEET test. CM MK Stalin asked the opposition parties (AIADMK) to endorse this resolution."Today, I have presented the resolution against NEET. You (AIADMK) also brought this resolution. I urge opposition parties to extend their support to this resolution," He said

Meanwhile, AIADMK has assured the government to support the NEET resolution. Former Tamil Nadu CM  K Palaniswami said, "Students didn't prepare well for the exam as DMK-govt said that NEET will be scrapped. We have decided to walk out in protest. We will support NEET resolution." 

"Students and their parents were totally confused over the conduction of the NEET exam here. There is no clear stand taken by the DMK govt on NEET. Yesterday, a student, Danush committed suicide," AIADMK leader said.

Previously, the Madras High Court dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) brought by K. Nagarajan, the Tamil Nadu state general secretary of the BJP, alleging that forming a committee to investigate the impact of NEET violated a Supreme Court mandate. The Madras High Court's first bench, comprised of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, ruled that "forming a committee was fully within the scope of the elected administration and does not amount to disobedience."
