DMK says Tamil Nadu first state to unmask NEET, nation now realises test 'fraudulent'

The DMK is for a debate in both the Houses of Parliament over NEET irregularities and Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi has said that the issue should be deliberated.

CHENNAI: The ruling DMK on Monday dubbed the NEET as an 'industry' created for the 'welfare' of coaching centres that rake in 'several lakh crores' and said Tamil Nadu was the first state to make this clear and major parties at the national level now raise their voice against the test.

Pointing to the arrest of several people and searches by the CBI in connection with NEET-UG irregularities, DMK Tamil mouthpiece 'Murasoli,' said BJP's partner, JD(U) itself has passed a resolution over the irregularities.

"India's major parties have started to raise their voice against NEET."

The DMK is for a debate in both the Houses of Parliament over NEET irregularities and Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi has said that the issue should be deliberated.

Days ago, in the state Assembly, Minister for Sports and Youth Welfare, Udhayanidhi Stalin spoke on the 'Dravidian Algorithm,' explaining that Tamil Nadu understood much ahead of other states whether 'NEET is good or bad.'

Similarly, Tamil people understood before others on why 'Hindi imposition' must be opposed.

In its editorial on July 1, 2024, the Tamil daily said: "It was Tamil Nadu which first said that NEET is fraudulent. Now the entire country is supporting that.

NEET is an industry created for the welfare of coaching centres that rake in several lakh crores and Tamil Nadu was the first state to say that. Today, gangs of fraudsters are being arrested."

Referring to the Tamil Nadu Assembly resolution passed on June 28, 2024 seeking exemption to the state from NEET and urging scrapping of the medical entrance exam altogether, the DMK daily said, "only now India is fully realising the fraudulent NEET."

The DMK has said time and again that the medical entrance exam NEET is against social justice, it goes against the interests of poor, rural students and favours only coaching centres.

Main opposition AIADMK and most parties in the state are opposed to NEET.
