A hashtag saying “TN Stand With Suriya” is trending in nationwide as the actor’s statement has created a serious debate in social media regarding the existence of NEET examination. In the heated argument between the supporters of ruling government and people of state Tamil nadu, actress Gayathri Raguramm, an ardent supporter of the BJP party, has questioned Suriya on banning films. Suriya’s press release came after three students ended their life in Tamil nadu due to the fear of facing NEET examination.
Actor Suriya who is also known for his socially responsible activities such as providing free education to poor students, released a statement slamming the system which forced students of take such decision. The founder of “Agaram” said that there is nothing shameful than condolencing students before going to examination instead of wishing them to write it well. He said that it worries him on realizing the fact that students are forced to prove themselves by writing examinations even during the ongoing pandemic situation which is a threat to their life.

“The government which is supposed to provide equal chances to everyone, brining an educational system as law that encourages discrimination. People who couldn’t understand the reality of poor people are deriving the educational policies.” Suriya said in his statement, directly attacking the central government.
The actor further compared the ruling government with Drona of Mahabharata who asked for Ekalavya’s right thumb, knowing that the loss will hamper Ekalavya’s ability to pursue archery. “Modern age Dronas are demanding our children to prove them by writing examinations at 6th grade. Even if our children succeed in those challenges, they are waiting with dangerous weapons such as “NEET” to kill them” the actor expressed his emotion.
“We should not stand and watch the demise of innocent students. We should act as a society that stands against NEET which is destroying the dreams of children from ordinary families” the actor registered his stand firmly.
This statement from Suriya, garnered, hugely a positive response from public. As expected it didn’t go well with the supporters of the Modi government. Actress, Choreographer and former Bigg Boss contestant Gayathri Raguramm posted a tweet saying that fans are dying while celebrating the first day first show of top-tier actos and questioned whether the films should also be banned.
She further said that there is no logic in banning movies for such reason and compared it with the statement of Suriya. The BJP member asked him to encourage students to face the exam instead of seeking ban on the examination. “fans have died falling banners to celebrate actors FDFS n fans have lost their lives just by spending money on fan clubs. Can we ban movies? No logic right? Pls encourage students to study n face the exam boldly. Doctors – Everyday is like exam when they attend their patients.” her statement read.

However, people counter attacked the statement of Gayathri Raguramm by saying that if people are dying while mounting banner, the thing that should be banned in banner culture not movies. “Similarly, NEET should be banned not medicine.” said one of a twitter user.

ரசிகர்கள் பேனர் கட்டும் போது விபத்து நேர்ந்தால்,பேனர் கலாச்சாரத்தை தான் தடை செய்யனும்.சினிமாவை அல்ல.
தடை செய்ய வேண்டியது நீட் தேர்வை.மருத்துவத்தை அல்ல.
ஏற்கனவே இந்த பேனர் வைப்பது வேண்டாம் என்று @Suriya_offl அவர்கள் முதல் பலர் தடை போட்டுள்ளனர்.
ஏம்மா.. உனக்கு சுத்தாம அறிவே இல்லையா? கருமத்த நீயெல்லாம் அரசியல்னு வந்துட்ட.— மாயோன் (@podhuvudama) September 14, 2020
பேனர் வைக்கிறப்போ விபத்து ஏற்பட்டா படங்களை ஏன் தடை பண்ணனும்? பேனர் வைப்பதை தானே தடை பண்ணனும்.

When there is exam for every different courses like #NEET #JEE 12TH, 11TH, 10TH and many entrance exams ….Why the government should make an entrance exams for different posts like MLA, MP, PM..Before they are participating in Elections…@gayathriraguram Is this logic— Sandy.cruze (@sathiya49366508) September 14, 2020
