Tamil Nadu CM Stalin writes to CMs Of 12 States over NEET Opposition

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K Stalin has written to Chief ministers of 11 non-BJP ruled states and Goa, seeking their support to oppose the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test and restore "the primacy of states" in education, the government said on Monday.

Stalin has also deputed his party MPs to reach out to the heads of such states to drum up support. In a letter to his counterparts, the Chief Minister reiterated his government's opposition to NEET.

His letter was addressed to the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Goa, Jharkhand, Kerala, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Telangana and West Bengal. “Our considered position has always been that the Union govt’s decision to introduce the NEET goes against the very spirit of federalism and violates the constitutional balance of power by curbing the rights of the State governments to decide on the method of admission to the medical institutions founded, established and run by them,”. Stalin said in the letter, a copy of which was circulated to the media. “In this regard, we consider that the State governments need to assert their constitutional right and position in deciding the method of admission to their higher educational institutions,” he said.
