Chennai, Aug 18 : Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin today said that a resolution seeking exemption from NEET will be passed in the State Assembly during the ongoing budget session itself.
Intervening during the debate on the general budget and agriculture budget in the Assembly, he said the resolution will be formulated based on the report of the AK Rajan committee constituted to find out the impact of NEET on socially backward students in the State.
The resolution will then be tabled and passed in the Assembly during the ongoing session itself,’ he said. Earlier, Chepauk-Tiruvallikeni MLA Udhayanidhi Stalin, in his maiden speech, said all the parties should cooperate with the government to cancel the NEET exams for the State.
He also said that the government hospital in Ariyalur should be named after Anitha, who lost her life due to NEET.
Abolishing NEET was one of the key electoral promises made by the DMK in its manifesto. However, after the DMK came to power after a gap of ten years, it could not fulfill it this year, drawing constant criticisms from the opposition AIADMK.
