Oppositional AIADMK in Tamil Nadu on Saturday asked the ruling DMK to “clarify” whether the state will conduct a National Entry and Eligibility Test (NEET) this year, saying the government has not given a definitive answer to the question. business before.
Opposition leader and joint coordinator of AIADMK K. Palaniswamy said that, raising this issue in the Assembly at the just ended session, Chief Minister M.K. Stalin “did not give a direct answer to the question of whether NEET will be held this year and whether students should prepare for it or not.”
Stalin only said that the Justice Committee of A.K. Rajana was created by the state government to study the impact of NEET and that further action will be taken based on his recommendations, he said.
“When I asked at the House if NEET would be held this year or not, and if so, should students prepare for it, the Honorable Chief Minister did not give a direct answer,” Palaniswamy said in a statement.
This led to confusion among students and parents about NEET’s status in Tamil Nadu this year, the former chief minister said, even as he pointed out that DMK was campaigning ahead of the April 6th polls, assured that NEET would “cancel” shortly after how he comes to power.
With NEETs slated to take place across the country this year, the state government must “clarify” whether students in Tamil Nadu must attend the exam or not, Palaniswami demanded.
Regarding Tamil Nadu, most were of the opinion that there should be no NEET for medical appointments, LoP said, pointing out that it was introduced in 2010 when the Congress-led UPA, in which the DMK was a key element, was in power at the Center. …
The “Amma government” later moved the petition to the Supreme Court and secured an exemption for NEET in Tamil Nadu, but the Supreme Court ordered an examination nationwide based on a petition for review, he recalled.
When he was chief minister, Palaniswamy said the government provided 7.5% of hospital admissions reservations for public school students enrolled in the NEET program. While continuing to “firmly” oppose NEET, he said, the then-AIADMK government also helped public school students prepare for it by adjusting the curriculum and providing training accordingly.
