NEET-UG Row LIVE: CM Stalin writes to PM Modi, urging him to abolish medical entrance exam

NEET Driving Live: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Friday urged the Centre to exempt the state from the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-UG) 2024 for admissions to medical colleges. In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he also urged the Centre to do away with the national-level exam and said admissions should be through Class 12 marks. In separate letters to his counterparts in Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Punjab, Telangana and West Bengal, CM Stalin asked them to consider passing a resolution similar to Tamil Nadu in their respective assemblies to do away with NEET.

On the other hand, the CBI, which was investigating the NEET UG paper leak at the request of the education ministry, arrested the principal and deputy principal of a school in Jharkhand’s Hazaribagh. The CBI had earlier registered six FIRs and arrested two more persons from Bihar in connection with the irregularities in the exam.
