The news is gathered that the central government has agreed to the proposal made by the Tamil Nadu state government to pass an emergency At in the Legislative Assembly as was done in the case of Jallikkattu issue. It is further known that the activities to implement this proposal have already commenced.
It is understood that when the Prime Minister was in Tamil Nadu 2 days ago, a few suggestions were given to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E. Palanisamy. As per this, it seems that the state government has been asked to pass an Emergency Act in the Legislative Assembly as was done in the case of the Jallikkattu issue, a simial Emergency Act can be passed against the central government stand on NEET.
The related ministry circles informed that the central cabinet ministries of Law, Health, and Human Welfare and Development refused permission to the Tamil Nadu state government proposal seeking exemption from NEET. It seems that these ministries pointed at the ruling of the Supreme Court in this regard.
It is gathered that some senior IAS officials suggested that the Tamil Nadu State Government should pass an emergency Act in the Legislative Assembly against NEET. Accordingly, activities have been initiated. It is expected that the proposal will be placed in the Legislative Assembly in 1 or 2 days and submitted to the central government home ministry. This will be sent by the senior IAS officials to the 3 related central government ministries to get the approval.
Though the governor of the Tamil Nadu state government approves the proposal, the central government approval is essential. The Home Ministry is set to take up this responsibility. As it is not a permanent Act, it is suggested that this may not require approval from the president.
It is understood that the central government has come forward to grant exemption from NEET to the Tamil Nadu State Government for the current academic year and may be 1 or 2 years more.
