Chennai: To discuss the next course of action in the wake of the Governor returning the Bill seeking exemption for the State from NEET, the State government has called for a meeting of all parties having representation in the Assembly on Saturday, February 5, at the Secretariat.
The government would make all efforts to pass the Bill again in the Assembly and send it for Presidential accent after studying the remarks made by the Governor against the earlier Bill and also to explain the truth behind NEET, an official press release on Thursday said.
Representatives of all parties would meet at 11 am to look into the Governor’s contention that the Bill passed by the Assembly went against the interest of poor and rural students and that the findings of the A K Rajan committee were wrong, which were unacceptable to the people of the State.
The file relating to the Governor returning the Bill was signed on February 1 and received by the Government on February 2 evening, the release said, adding that it had been sent to the Speaker.
