Political uproar over NEET intensifies

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin wrote a letter to Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi requesting him to raise the demand for exemption of the state from NEET. Along with this, he requested the India Alliance to pass a resolution against the NEET exam in their assemblies. The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Friday once again unanimously passed a resolution urging the Center to exempt the state from the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET). He also appealed to give admission to medical courses to students on the basis of 12th exam marks. The resolution was passed amid protests by BJP members and a walkout from the House. It calls on the Center to amend the National Medical Commission Act and abolish the nationwide exam in view of growing protests in several states in the wake of alleged irregularities in NEET.

Stalin made this appeal by writing a letter

However, BJP ally Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) supported the proposal moved by Chief Minister and DMK president MK Stalin. Stalin has argued that the exam is discriminatory and deprives rural and poor students of the opportunity to pursue medical education. Chief Minister Stalin claimed that the medical entrance exam 'NEET' deprives states of their right to admit students to medical education with 12th pass eligibility criteria.

Ruling party and opposition face to face in Parliament on NEET issue

There was a lot of uproar in the Lok Sabha over the NEET scam. On Friday, the opposition parties did not allow the proceedings of the House to continue without discussing the NEET exam. Opposition members led by Rahul Gandhi remained adamant on their demand, after which Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla adjourned the proceedings of the House first till 12 noon and then for the whole day. Speaker Birla and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju told the opposition members that they can raise the issue during the discussion on the motion of thanks on the President's address. Om Birla said that there is a difference between protesting on the road and protesting inside the House. Does the opposition not want to run the House? Do you not want to discuss NEET during the discussion on the motion of thanks?

The proceedings of the House could not continue

Rijiju said that it has never happened before that any other issue was discussed in the House before the debate on the motion of thanks on the President's address. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi alleged that his mic was switched off when he was trying to speak. On this, the Speaker said that he has no provision to switch off the mic of any member. Later Rahul Gandhi said that India Block wants to have a constructive debate with the government on the issue of NEET exam and paper leak. It is unfortunate that we were not allowed to do so in Parliament.

The ruling party raised questions on the attitude of the opposition

Like the Lok Sabha, a similar scene was witnessed in the Rajya Sabha. Opposition members, including Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge, came into the well of the House and continued their protest despite repeated adjournments. Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar said that it is very sad for me, it is unbelievable for me that Mallikarjun Kharge, a leader with more than five decades of parliamentary experience, went into the well of the House. What I have seen is that this institution has been tarnished, tainted and humiliated.
