Chief Minister Jayalalitha is ensuring in every way possible to avoid participation in NEET, recently she has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh protesting against NEET. Tamil Nadu stance is very clear and they are completely against NEET.
If MCI doesn’t exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET, no wonder the state will approach High Court and get a stay order. Such incidents happened even last year,Madras High Court has given stay order.
Andhra Pradesh on NEET
Last year the state government has asked the MCI, to exempt it’s students from NEET for 2 years. However since MCI is conducting a nation wide CET, even AP needs to be a part of it. Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy has assured the students to prepare for EAMCET in 2013, he has written to Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad citing reasons to exempt from NEET.
Bihar & Odisha on NEET
These state governments openly said that their interests are completely against the NEET. Citing reasons that their state students cannot compete with a pool of national students who have an edge over the CBSE curriculum, since NEET syllabus is purely based on CBSE syllabus. These states stated that they prefer having their own medical entrance exams for graduate & postgraduate medical courses.
