The Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) led by T.T.V. Dinakaran on Friday announced that it will help National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) aspirants from Tamil Nadu who have been allotted exam centres in neighbouring Kerala. Dinakaran said the AMMK has made arrangements for Tamil Nadu students who need accommodation and route guidance to the exam centres.
In a statement, Dinakaran — the nephew of now jailed former AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala — claimed that the action of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) with respect to the NEET was a “reflection of the central government’s anti-Tamil Nadu attitude”. The AMMK leader said several hundred medical college aspirants from Tamil Nadu have been allotted centres in states like Kerala and even Rajasthan.
NEET 2018 is scheduled to be held on May 6 and over 12 lakh candidates have registered for the entrance exam.
