DMK urges Central govt to scrap NEET

Chennai, Oct 3 (UNI) The DMK President MK Stalin asked the Central Government to scrap the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for medical admission, as it was affecting the rural students.
In a press statement here on Wednesday, MK Stalin said the union government was slowly damaging the vernacular languages.
He said that though the BJP led union government had announced that the NEET exam could be written in all languages including Tamil, there was a wrong translation in the question paper.
He said that in the last NEET exam, more than 24,000 Tamil Nadu students were affected due to a wrong translation in the question paper and that the number of rural students writing the NEET exam had been reduced completely.
Mr Stalin said that due to this governmental failure, some of the students committed suicide.
