Tamil Nadu DMK Oppn parties stage joint protest against NEET

Censuring government teachers who are boycotting classes as part of their protest along with other state government employees demanding implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations, Justice N Kirubakaran of the Madras high court on Wednesday said such boycotts and strikes by teachers were also a primary reason for government school students' low marks in NEET. The court then directed the state government to file a report by September 14 on the steps taken to end the protests.

The queries - 1.Whether the State Government took steps to provide counselling to the frustrated students who failed to get MBBS course admission in view of Neet? 2.

Law students across the state staged a demonstration over the death of the Dalit medical aspirant and a petitioner in the Supreme Court against NEET. They should know their responsibility.

Observing that equally committed, devoted and honest teachers are also working in government schools and their contribution need to be highly appreciated, the court said it was only concerned with the erring teachers. "This is a protest for safeguarding the interest of students", he said at the protest.

Anitha was the daughter of a daily wage earner who allegedly hanged herself in her home in Ariyalur district, Tamil Nadu, on September 1, 2017.

Noting that a section of teachers have been boycotting classes from this month, thereby spoiling the education of poor students, the court sought information from the authorities concerned on the number of teachers unions striking without attending classes, among others.
