Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K. Selvaperunthagai on Friday alleged that the NEET was held mainly for the benefit of coaching institutions.

Speaking to the reporters, Mr. Selvaperunthagai said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has clearly stated that States need to consider NEET only when the syllabus is uniform and that until then it should not be imposed on any state.

“NEET benefits coaching is quite clear who among the ‘BJP leaders’ are part of such institutions. NEET should not be imposed on States in a democracy. It destroys the dream of poor and rural students who want to become doctors,” he contended.
