Tamil Nadu girl, who filed case against Neet, ends life

The Tamil Nadu government hadn't revised their syllabus for NEET exams which made students of the state lose out against those from CBSE and other boards. But the Supreme Court ruled that medical admissions from this year would based only on NEET scores.

Anitha had scored 1,176 out of 1,200 marks in Class XII and had a cut off of 196.75 for medicine. Dejected after failing to secure an MBBS seat despite her efforts, Anitha committed suicide on Friday at her home in Ariyalur.

Earlier Anitha had approached the Supreme Court against the NEET Exam conducted for medical admission. This year too, the State government sought exemption and the Legislative Assembly passed amendments to continue the existing practice in medical college admissions.

State BJP leader H. Raja had openly backed NEET saying it was a fallacy to state that non-State board students would not be able to get admissions under NEET. As the opposition demanded health minister C Vijaya Bhaskar's resignation following her death, he expressed shock and claimed that the state did whatever possible to ensure that the state was exempt from NEET. Taking a jibe at Tamil Nadu government, he said, "Tamil Nadu politics is looking sarcastic". It was stayed in 2013 after a clutch of petitions from deemed universities, minority institutions and some state governments reached the Supreme Court.

While the blame game over her death has already begun in the state, Health Secretary J Radhakrishnan urged students, teachers and parents to not think that not getting a seat is the "end of the world". The state government is yet to release the break-up of state and other board students who had got admissions based on NEET. "The Governor has to take immediate action to save Tamil Nadu".
