DMK president M. K. Stalin said that though he requested the Speaker to make an obituary reference over the deaths of students, who had died by suicide fearing failure in NEET, this was not accepted

Three day monsoon session of the Tamil Nadu Assembly commenced with the opposition party DMK’s demand to ban the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in the state of Tamil Nadu. 

DMK lawmakers lead by party president MK Stalin participated in the house proceeding wearing a mask printed with the slogan ‘Ban NEET, Save TN students’ both in Tamil and English.

DMK president M. K. Stalin said that though he requested the Speaker to make an obituary reference over the deaths of students, who had died by suicide fearing failure in NEET, this was not accepted

“I requested the inclusion of the names of students who died by suicide along with the names of other names that were to be read out and condoled, but it was not accepted,” Mr. Stalin said.

The leader of the opposition also claimed that the Assembly business advisory committee refused to pay heed to the party`s suggestion for an extended session to discuss crucial issues like NEET and the Centre`s draft Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) 2020 notification. "I and my party MLAs have given about 15 to 20 notices seeking special call attention motion to discuss the issues. I wonder if these could be taken up in the next two days," Stalin told reporters.
