Stalin, in his note, said that he feels extremely sad for Naveen who scored 97 percentage in 12th standard but couldn’t pursue his dream of studying medicine due to NEET entrance exam in India and went to Ukraine to become a Doctor which ended his life. The Tamil nadu chief minister condemned the stand of union government’s members, ministers and supporters.
“Union Government should fix its mind to save each and every student who are suffering in Ukraine due to the invasion of Russia. This is not a time to spread your propaganda or advertise yourself. This is a time to save those students” he wrote in his post.
“Prime minister should warn those BJP supporters who are opining statements hurting the emotions of students and their parents” Stalin said and went on to state how DMK is raising voice against NEET as it is destroying the dreams of MBBS aspirants who belong to middle class and lower class. He further said that leaders of other states have also started making similar opinions and the cancellation of NEET is needed for the entire country.
Stalin said that the current situation in Ukraine gives a strong reason to cancel NEET in India. He insisted the union government to allot medical seats to students based on their 12th marks. “This is not the time to question students on why they went to Ukraine to study medicine. “Cancelling NEET” is our immediate goal and achieving the goal is not so far. Let protest together to win” MK Stalin said in his post.

“#Ukraine போன்ற சிறிய நாடுகளுக்கு ஏன் மருத்துவக் கல்வி படிக்கப் போனார்கள்” என்று கேள்வி கேட்க பா.ஜ.க.வுக்கு இதுவா நேரம்?
பரப்புரை செய்யவோ விளம்பரப்படுத்திக் கொள்வதற்கோ உகந்த நேரம் அல்ல. உயிருக்கும் – எதிர்காலத்திற்கும் போராடும் மாணவர்களைக் காப்பாற்றுங்கள். (1/2) pic.twitter.com/Ikp4hXjxkc
