Ramadoss flays Jaya govt. for CET decision

Written by: Staff

Chennai, Mar 28 (UNI) Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder leader Dr S Ramadoss, a strong advocate for abolition of Common Entrance Test (CET), today flayed the Jayalalithaa government for deciding to hold CET for admission to professional courses, saying the government had cheated the people and students for the second successive year.

Reacting to the government's decision to conduct CET for students of all boards for this academic year, Dr Ramadoss, who launched a series of agitations against CET last year, said only if the present government was removed would students be freed from the exam.

Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had again proved she was neither interested in nor keen on abolishing CET, which posed a burden on rural students, who could not compete with their urban counterparts.

Having 'slept' for 11 months, government brought legislation to abolish CET for state board students at the fag end of the Assembly session last month, without consulting educational and legal experts.

Dr Ramadoss said as long as Ms Jayalalithaa was in power, CET would not be abolished in the state and called upon the people to teach her a lesson in the May 8 assembly elections.
