The state government on June 10 constituted a committee headed by retired Justice AK Rajan to study the results of NEET and the committee recommended that admission to medical courses through NEET examination should put Tamil medium students at a disadvantage. The committee reported that after the formation of NEET the medical admission of students from Tamil medium background has decreased and there was CBSE bias in the examination so as to make it difficult for students under Tamil medium.
The DEMK, which has been campaigning vigorously against the Knights, has decided that the party will conduct an awareness campaign across the state highlighting the major flaws mentioned by Justice AK Rajan’s committee.

NEET is becoming the standard of medical admission.
“The study conducted by the Justice AK Rajan Commission has clearly indicated that this is true. As a responsible political party, we will conduct awareness programs across the state to highlight the shortcomings of NEET and how students of Tamil medium background.
Justice Rajan Commission further said that MBC, SC, SC (Adi Dravidian), mostly students from socially backward communities, ST studies in Tamil medium government schools, backward communities mostly CBSE, ICSE, matriculation, private, government-aided and central government schools and forwards. Most of the caste community studies in CBSE and ICSE schools.
The committee further noted that the admission rate for MBBS courses for Tamil medium students before NEET days was 14.44 per cent and it has come down to a negligible 1.7 per cent in 2020-21.
The study further found that the enrollment rate of rural students in MBBS courses has also come down significantly and noted that this is due to the lack of proper training of rural students for NEET.
The DMK also plans to raise these issues during the rural local body elections as it could connect the party with the rural masses. With a scientific paper in hand, the DMK thinks it can be highlighted and will force all other political parties in the state to express their concerns against the net.
