DMK organises hunger strike demanding abolition of NEET

Chennai: The youth wing of DMK organised a one-day hunger strike across all district headquarters of the state on Sunday, for abolishing the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) as a requirement for MBBS admissions.

DMK senior leaders including S.Duraimurugan, Ma Subramanian, PK Sekar Babu , Dayanidhi Maran and Chennai Mayor R. Priya, MPs and MLAs joined Udayanidhi Stalin during the protest at Valluvar Kottam in Chennai.

A collage of students, who died by suicide for failing to crack the NEET, was on display on the main stage. The DMK party leaders observed a minute's silence for the deceased.

The protest comes after state Governor RN Ravi refused to ban the NEET examination in the state.

Senior DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Minister for Water Works S.Duraimurugan while speaking to IANS said: “NEET is against the welfare of students and DMK has opposed it for long.”

He said that the Tamil Nadu assembly has passed resolutions against NEET during the period of the previous AIADMK government and the present DMK government as well.”

The senior leader also said that the anti-NEET bill is with the President of India for her approval.
