Congress, DMK MPs walk out of Rajya Sabha over NEET exemption bill

Opposition lawmakers, including the Congress, the Trinamool Congress, and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha on Friday in protest of Tamil Nadu governor R N Ravi’s decision to return the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Exemption Bill. They urged that the judgement be reversed.

The news: After an aspirant committed suicide and died a day before his third attempt to pass the exam, the Tamil Nadu assembly passed a bill in September to abolish the NEET, allowing admittance to MBBS and BDS programmes based on class 12 grades.

  • On Thursday, Ravi returned the bill, claiming that it is detrimental to kids from low-income and rural backgrounds.
  • Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin met Ravi twice, according to DMK member of Parliament Trichy Siva, and asked him to deliver the bill to the Central government. “However, he did not. He acted against the spirit of the federal government.”

The DMK leaders demanded that the topic be discussed, but Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu refused.

The Lok Sabha staged a similar walkout on Thursday, with anti-Ravi shouts.
