2 min read

            MK Stalin, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, startled everyone when he stopped his automobile in the middle of the road to meet with a youngster holding a poster that read, ‘CM Sir Help Me’.

The event occurred on Thursday, as the CM was on his way to the secretariat.

Taking to Twitter, the Chief Minister’s office reported that the youngster, a resident of Andhra Pradesh’s East Godavari region, visited Stalin and expressed thanks for his opposition to the National Eligibility Cumulative Entrance Test (NEET) examinations. Furthermore, he advocated for the implementation of NEET exemptions in Andhra Pradesh as well as across the country.

The student further informed the chief minister that, despite receiving high marks in Class XII, he was unable to pursue a medical career due to NEET. ‘The Chief Minister informed the student that NEET was being prosecuted and thanked him for his assistance’. “He requested that the student return to his original country”, according to an official announcement.

Exemptions from the NEET

Tamil Nadu has been requesting exemption from the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test, and the matter has emotional overtones in the state, with a few medical aspirants apparently committing suicide as a result of low grades or fears of not passing it. Earlier this month, the CM repeated that NEET was detrimental to rural student’s interests and said that the Centre, through the entrance test, had ‘snatched away states’ rights to decide how to conduct medical admissions, with the state wanting to do so solely based on Class XII marks.
