New Delhi. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asking him not to bring any ordinance to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision on the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), saying that students have accepted the decision as it discourages donation-practice.
In the letter, Kejriwal says, many hard working and efficient students miss upon the opportunity to get a good medical education whereas the affluent family’s children get into medical colleges through the donations’., which is the main reason not to question the apex court’s ruling.
“I came to know that reports are afloating that the Centre is planning to overturn Supreme Court’s ruling and people are tensed hearing this news. The people of the nation will be cheated if the Centre goes through with this decision. Just a few days ago, Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda called a meeting over the issue, where almost all health ministers opposed NEET, except Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain,” the letter stated.
Kejriwal added that many politicians are running their own private medical colleges accepting high donations and encouraging the donation-practice, that’s why they stand opposing the NEET examinations.
“It is my humble request to you to ensure that no orders are brought against the Supreme Court ruling in the matter, otherwise people will think that the Centre stand with those who garner black money,” Kejriwal said.
Several parliamentarians opposed the common medical entrance test, saying the NEET has created confusion among the students who have already applied for the state entrance exams.
