TNCC president Ok.S. Alagiri on Saturday demanded that Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit instantly give assent to the Bill offering 7.5% reservation for presidency college college students who’ve certified in NEET.
“This Bill was passed by the Assembly on September 15 but is waiting for the Governor’s assent. All parties have been demanding that this 7.5% reservation be implemented from the current academic year but the Governor has not taken any decision on it yet. This gives rise to suspicion that the BJP has some agenda on the issue,” Mr. Alagiri stated.
Mr. Alagiri stated 19,000 college students who had taken coaching in 412 teaching centres arrange by the Tamil Nadu authorities had not cleared NEET.
“Can there be something more shameful for the government? It is because the government not been appointing qualified teachers in these coaching centres this sort of a shameful situation has arisen. The T.N. government should be held responsible for it,” he stated.
