In Tamilnadu, the demand for Medical Reservation in the medical sector has increased. Party workers led by DMK leader MK Stalin staged a protest outside the Raj Bhavan on Saturday. The protesters have demanded the governor to quickly approve the 7.5 percent reservation bill for children of government schools in medical courses, which has become an issue between the ruling AIADMK and the opposition DMK. DMK chief Stalin has also written a letter to Governor Banwari Lal Purohit regarding Neet reservation.
The bill was passed a month ago
The bill was passed in the assembly on 15 September, but the governor has sought 3-4 weeks to consider all the legal aspects related to the reservation. However, Stalin has warned that the future of students of 300 government schools passing the NEET (National Eligibility, Entrance Test) exam will be spoiled for those who want to enroll in various courses. They have demanded to sign the bill immediately.
The ruling party is not pressuring the governor
Stalin alleged that the ruling AIADMK was not pressurizing the governor in the matter. Although Chief Minister EK Palaniswamy denied these allegations, hundreds of people joined the protest near Raj Bhavan, the official residence of the Governor, but social distancing was not taken care of during this period.
Trying to take political advantage- Palaniswami
Palaniswami said that Stalin is trying to gain political advantage through such protests. Also expressed confidence that the governor will soon approve the bill. According to Palaniswami, DMK and Congress are trying to show that they have made provision for reservation of students of government schools.
Chief minister’s charge, Neet came under Congress rule
Palaniswami objected that NEET was implemented in the country only during the Congress rule. Whereas Tamil Nadu has been opposing uniform examination in the country for the courses of medical colleges for a decade. In Tamil Nadu, 13 students have committed suicide due to fear of failure or failure in NEET. It has become a big political issue.
