Tamil Nadu Prime Minister MK Stalin said Thursday that an all-party meeting would be held in Chennai on Jan. 8 to discuss the state government’s call for exemption from the national entrance examination, PTI reported. The NEET exam is used for admission to undergraduate medical studies.
Stalin also said that an all-party delegation of MPs led by TR Baalu from Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam was unable to meet the Union’s Interior Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday to discuss the matter. He added that the center had taken no action regarding the Tamil Nadu bill exempting the state from NEET.
In September, the Tamil Nadu Convention passed a law abolishing the state entrance examination. State governor RN Ravi has not yet passed the bill to the president for approval, so The times of India.
In his speech to the Tamil Nadu assembly on Thursday, Stalin said that “our fight against NEET and for social justice will continue”. He said NEET was against the interests of students in rural areas and also alleged that the entrance test deprived states of the right to determine how medical admissions were made.
Stalin also claimed that the Shah refused to meet the delegation of his party deputies. This was “anti-democratic,” he said. The news minute reported.
“Tamil Nadu is a pioneer in the health sector with well-trained doctors who have graduated from medical schools and obtained their admission on the basis of school education,” said the Prime Minister. “But the Union government has introduced NEET, which has an impact on students and paves the way for those who can afford an expensive education to take the exam.”
Stalin said that NEET “made a joke of a child’s 12 years of schooling by rendering them completely useless”.
The Tamil Nadu government has requested that students be admitted to medical schools based on their grade 12 grades.
Tamil Nadu’s resistance to NEET
NEET is prepared by the Central Board of Secondary Education and is based on its own curriculum, which is very different from the curriculum of the Tamil Nadu Board. Because of this, Tamil Nadu has come out against the exam, arguing that taking a joint entrance test would hurt prospects for the State Board’s students.
In September, three NEET candidates died by suicide in the state, causing massive outrage.
However, the Bharatiya Janata Party has claimed that the people of Tamil Nadu want NEET, but the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam do not.
