Tamil Nadu: A 12-year-old girl allegedly commits suicide after her teacher scolded her for a period stain in her uniform and bench.
On Aug 22, the Supreme Court directed the Tamil Nadu government to complete the process of counselling in case of medical admission as per the NEET merit list by Sept 4.
The state government had passed two legislations seeking exemption from Neet in February and these were pending before the Union government since then.
Even AIADMK deputy general secretary T.T.V. Dhinakaran said that the irresponsible act of the State government and the Centre, which promised to exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET, was responsible for her suicide.
Kathy Castor: It'll be 'colossal error' for Donald Trump to dump DACA
DACA was designed five years ago for undocumented immigrants younger than 30, "dreamers", who were brought to the U.S.as children. If the program goes away, it will force employers to part ways with employees who are no longer authorized to work.
Until a year ago, medical college admission in Tamil Nadu was done on the basis of the Plus Two examination marks. She had scored an impressive 1,176 out of 1,200 marks in class XII board examinations, but couldn't qualify for a medical college seat after she obtained 86 out of 700 in the compulsory NEET. "One can always prepare well and get through next year", he said, asking students to refrain from succumbing to depression.
The Supreme Court's decision brought a setback for the students hoping relief from the NEET exams. According to the police, Anitha hanged herself from the ceiling of her tiled -house using a saree around neck at around 2 pm on Friday. "Their efforts were not honest and were aimed at benefitting only students belonging to the upper class", DMK leader M.K. Stalin alleged. However, her NEET scores didn't make the cut.
Health Minister Dr C Vijayabaskar expressed grief and sorrowover the suicide of Anitha and urged the students not to take such an extreme step under any situation.
He said those who should fight against NEET were indulging in horse trading, in a veiled reference to the divide in the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam.
While DMK acting president MK Stalin blamed the Modi government and the "non-existent Tamil Nadu government" for the girl's death, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi president Thol Thirumavalavan termed NEET as "anti-poor and anti-rural".
