There is no need for NEET exam, says TVK president Vijay

There is no need for NEET exam, says TVK president Vijay

Tamil Nadu Vetri Kazhagam president, Vijay, stated that the NEET exam is unnecessary during an award ceremony for students. For the second consecutive year, Tamil Nadu Vetri Kazhagam conducted an education award ceremony, with actor Vijay speaking at the event on July 3 in Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai.

In his speech, Vijay expressed concerns about the NEET exam, saying, "Poor, rural, backward, and underprivileged students are negatively affected by the NEET exam. I see three main issues with the NEET exam. Firstly, it undermines state rights. Education was originally on the state list, but this problem began when the Union Government moved it to the public list.

Secondly, the idea of 'one country, one syllabus, one exam' is fundamentally anti-educational. Each state should have a tailored syllabus. Diversity is a strength, not a weakness. How can everyone equally write the NCERT syllabus after studying the state syllabus? Think of it as writing an entrance exam for medical school.

Thirdly, we have read numerous reports about NEET malpractices. As a result, people have lost confidence in the NEET exam. Media reports suggest that NEET is unnecessary.

The only solution to these problems is NEET exemption. I wholeheartedly welcome the Legislative Assembly Resolution brought by the Tamil Nadu Government to cancel the NEET examination. I urge the Union Government to respect the sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu without delay.

As a permanent solution to the NEET issue, I suggest that education should be moved from the public list back to the state list. If there is a practical problem with this, an interim solution would be to amend the Constitution to create a special public list to include education and health. My humble request is to create a special general list that gives full independence to the state governments.

Let the NEET exam be conducted in institutes like AIIMS, JIPMER, PGI, etc., which are under the control of the Union Government. In this context, I have shared that NEET waiver is my recommendation. Will this happen? I don't know if they will let it happen. I have shared my view.

So, students, enjoy your subjects. Don't take any pressure. This world is very big. There are many opportunities in it. Don't get discouraged if you lose something. If you fail, it means that God has more opportunities in store for you. Find out what it is. Be confident. Success is guaranteed," concluded Vijay.
