COIMBATORE: Tamil Nadu could have got exemption from NEET if the AIADMK exerted pressure on the BJP during the elections to the President and Vice President, DMK Working president M K Stalin said today.
The Centre failed to take any action despite the assembly passed a resolution seeking exemption for the state from NEET, Stalin said.
If the 50 AIADMK MPs exerted pressure on the BJP during the elections to the president and vice president the state could have got the exemption, he said, while speaking at a function at nearby Mettupalayam.
The ruling party was only interested in "protecting their government, neglecting the future of the students", he alleged.
Stalin urged the student community to come forward and fight for their cause.
He also recalled various schemes brought by the DMK government under M Karunanidhi benefiting the students.
