Actor Kamal Haasan
Supporting retired Justice AK Rajan’s report on the impact of NEET, Kamal Haasan released a statement calling NEET to be against social justice and equality.
“NEET shatters the medical aspirants’ dreams coming from poor or rural backgrounds. After NEET the percentage of students joining Medical courses has fallen from 14.44% to 1.7% and this shows that NEET is against social justice”, stated Kamal Haasan.
Kamal Haasan also backed the finding by AK Rajan report stating that only CBSE students have fared well in the exam and that 90% had undergone coaching.
NEET and Tamil Nadu
“Tamil Nadu has the greatest medical infrastructure in the Nation and if NEET continues, this will be lost”, he stated.
Kamal also stated that NEET is creating a mentality against one’s mother tongue and said that it should be removed not only from Tamil Nadu but the whole of India.
