Kanimozhi Karunanidhi meets Naveen Patnaik
DMK leader Kanimozhi Karunanidhi met Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik here on Wednesday to hand over a letter of Tamil Nadu chief minister M.K. Stalin on the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test.
Kanimozhi also explained the problems faced by the students from rural areas and poor households in clearing NEET.
In his letter, Stalin has drawn the attention of Naveen to the problems faced by students of rural base in clearing NEET UG examination and the need to make the exam inclusive.
Naveen had earlier raised this issue with the Centre and stressed the importance of making national exams inclusive and suggested the central Union government take steps in this regard.
The two leaders are of the view that the NEET in its current form does not provide a level-playing for students across financial backgrounds and discriminates against the poor.
