A day after the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) was conducted, DMK from Tamil Nadu, staged protests outside the Parliament on Monday demanding cancellation of the undergraduate exams, just hours ahead of the start of the Monsoon Session.
DMK MP Gautham Sigamani said that due to COVID-19 several students could not prepare well for NEET. Many of them in Tamil Nadu could not reach examination centres.
The opposition members have demanded immediate cancellation of the NEET exams. They have urged the central government to cancel and hold the exams afresh at a later date when situation improves in the country and transport and other facilities were totally restored
“NEET deprives dreams to the poor and rural students who score high marks in school education but are unable to get through NEET exam because they are not able to get any pvt coaching. 11 students have committed suicide in Tamil Nadu due to the fear of this exam,” said Tiruchi Siva, DMK
