NEET: SDPI workers held in a bid to enter collectorate

Covai Post Network

Around 25 workers of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) were arrested today when they attempted to enter the district collectorate in protest against forceful thrusting of NEET on students.

They blamed the Government for making NEET mandatory, without properly preparing the students, particularly from rural and also economically weaker sections, to face it.

They raised slogans against both the Centre and Tamil Nadu Governments for depriving the students to become doctors and protect the interests of the State.

The workers, numbering about 50 came in a procession and suddenly a section of workers attempted to enter the collectorate. However, policemen who were on duty prevented them and took them into custody.
