DMK demands Governor’s nod for bill on 7.5% quota in medical seats for govt school students without delay – education
The DMK staged a protest near Raj Bhawan, demanding that Governor Banwarilal Purohit pass without delay the bill that provides a 7.5 percent reserve for public school students in medical college places.
Party chair MK Stalin and MP Kanimozhi were also present during the protest. The secretary of the DMK youth wing and Stalin’s son Udayanidhi Stalin were also present at the protest along with members of the Liberation Army, parliamentarians and district secretaries.
“The NEET scheme is like a corporate company. It created a lot of confusion regarding the exam and results. Until Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha were here, the NEETs could not enter Tamil Nadu, ”Stalin said.
So far 14 students from Tamil Nadu have committed suicide due to NEET.
“We passed a resolution in the Assembly unanimously and we also sent it to the president, but it was sent back to Tamil Nadu. It was not published and no one was informed about it. This matter was reported to the court after 23 months. AIADMK said they will not allow NEET in the state. His party approved the resolution in its general assembly against the NEETs, ”he added.
Stalin went on to say, soon the DMK government will come to power in Tamil Nadu and the NEETs will be legally banned here.
“All party members unanimously passed a 7.5 percent reserve bill for public school students. I also wrote a letter to the Governor of TN to give a go-ahead soon. He answered me, but he did not say anything to erase the penalties of the poor students, he only said that it will take two or three weeks to make a decision, “Stalin said.
Since the counseling session for medical students will take part soon, the governor should not delay it.
Stalin said that today the DMK organized its first phase of protest and that if approval is still delayed, the protest will intensify in the next few days until the governor approves his assent for a 7.5 percent reserve for government students in medical posts ”.
