After Jyoti Sri Durga, a Madurai based medical aspirant who committed suicide due to the fear of facing NEET, two more students ended their life on Saturday due to the fear of facing the entrance examination called as “NEET”.

The actor’s statement made a huge impact in the Internet as the supporters of the ruling government started confronting the actor’s press release with their tweets and posts. Gurumurthy, in a series of tweets wrote “A fake debate is on in Tamil Nadu based on 3 suicides due to NEET. Truth is, the number of suicides due to choice has been declining since the advent of NEET. Suicide due to exams in Tamil Nadu in 2015 322. 215 in 2019 (NCRB Reports 2015 & 2019 on accidental deaths & suicides)”
Suicides that are taking place due to examinations is common, he believed. He said NEET kills only a few comparing to other exams. “Why not ban all exams?” he asked. Further he compared the students who are dying due to the fear of facing exams with the youngsters who are killing themselves due to love failure. “The number of suicides due to love failure is 656. (2019 NCRB data) 3 times as much as the exam. Love is 3 times more guilty than NEET Exam? What to do to Valentine’s Day which promotes love. Politicians will not comment on this.” he said in his tweet.

A student, who failed the NEET exam in Delhi, fell from the 8th floor and committed suicide. It did not become a political issue. https://t.co/YRoMsfrGtG— S Gurumurthy (@sgurumurthy) September 14, 2020
The number of suicides due to love failure is 656. (2019 NCRB data) 3 times as much as the exam. Love is 3 times more guilty than NEET Exam? What to do to Valentine’s Day which promotes love. Politicians will not comment on this.— S Gurumurthy (@sgurumurthy) September 14, 2020
Leave the politicians. Why TV channels, magazines and intellectuals, which hyped the three NEET related suicides are hiding these facts. As politicians do politics by NEET suicides they do business by it. Truth must come out beyond all lies. This is the situation today— S Gurumurthy (@sgurumurthy) September 14, 2020
Many found his tweet irrelevant to the debates that are going on. “Wait? You think valentine’s Day is the only reason love exists? That’s such a lonely life you lead man.” wrote one of a twitter user on seeing his love failure tweet.

The number of murders committed by men while masturbating is more than the number of people killed in holocaust so we should worry about masturbation rather being worried about global warming and world wars eh! நீ பேசுற லாஜிக் புண்ட அப்படிதான் மேன் இருக்கு. https://t.co/qXApO8anhY— Demon in disguise (@iampaamaran) September 14, 2020

இதலாம் உண்மையாவே ஒரு லாஜிக்னு தூக்கிட்டு வராங்களா? காதல் என்பது இஷ்டப்பட்டு பண்றது. அரசுக்கு அதுல எந்த பங்கும் இல்லை. NEET அரசின் திணிப்பு. ஏற்கனவே சரியாக இருக்கும் ஒரு முறையை மாற்றி செய்யப்பட்டது. அதன் விளைவுகளுக்கு அரசே பொறுப்பு. அடிப்படை புரிதலே இல்லாதவர்கள் மாட்டு மூளையர்கள் https://t.co/Fk25xlTpJP— திரு (@thirumarant) September 14, 2020
