DMK MP Tiruchi Siva on Tuesday has given a Zero Hour notice in the Rajya Sabha over the ‘adverse impact of holding NEET exam, leading to suicides by students’.
Earlier on Monday, demanding a ban on NEET, the MP had said that the common test deprives the poor and rural students of their future dreams as they are unable to qualify for the exam due to lack of private coaching.
Ahead of the monsoon session 2020 of Parliament which commenced yesterday, DMK MPs including TR Balu, Tiruchi Siva and Kanimozhi staged a protest against the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test examination (NEET) and demanded the exam be scrapped.
They arrived at Parliament wearing masks with ‘Ban NEET, save TN students’ printed on them.
