DMK government is a government for the students he said adding that he thanked the Governor for being supportive of the initiative. 
"While Kamarajar's era was the golden era of school education, Kalaingar Karunanidhi's era is the golden age of collegiate education. Under my tenure we are working to usher in the golden era of the higher education" said Stalin. The Chief Minister announced that in the coming academic year, Transgenders will be given free education.

Entrance exams like NEET will only encourage loot by coaching centers: Minister Ponmudi:
          Entrance exams like NEET will only enable coaching centers to fleece people said K.Ponmudi, Minister for Higher Education speaking at the Madras University Graduation Day.
The Government was firm on the stand that medical and degree course admissions should be based only on marks in Plus 2 exams,  as NEET will not be beneficial, said Ponmudi. Stating that students should follow the principle of social justice he said that the government wants to tell the Governor that education should remain only a state subject. He thanked the Governor for sending the NEET bill for Presidential approval.

Dr.A.P.J Abdul Kalam were students of the Madras Univerisity.
