Chennai: Union minister Pon. Radhakrishnan on Saturday said the ruling AIADMK is 'in ruins' while the DMK will come to an end soon. He also asserted that the policies and leadership of both the parties have also come to an end.
Talking to reporters at the airport here, the BJP leader said “Don't talk about percentage of votes. Even when there is a resentment against the AIADMK, neither the people nor the other parties want a DMK government. There is a new search in Tamil Nadu and the BJP will be the result of the search”.
He also added that at the government level, the Centre would fully cooperate with the state government and it would help to implement all the central schemes.
On the Neduvasal hydrocarbon project, he said Union petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan had clarified the Centre's stand and the department too had issued a statement. “We are not going to impose any scheme. But, a scheme should not be stopped without knowing if it is good or bad. Such an attitude is not good for Tamil Nadu and its people”.
To a question on Neet examination, he said Tamil Nadu students should be capable of competing at the international stage or at least they should compete with students of other states in India. But, the condition of government schools and the educational standard is very low and the demand by the state government to exempt Tamil Nadu students show the incapability of the state government.
“Last year, they opposed Neet and the demand was accepted. This year, students are allowed to take the examination in Tamil. Still, they are opposing. Even after 10 years, the state government is not able to bring Tamil as a language subject for all students in the state. There is a situation of students passing the school examination without studying Tamil”, Radhakrishnan said. Neet is not an issue to decide the fate of ministers or politicians and it decides the fate of students, he said and asked the state government not to play with education....
