Chennai, April 18 (BPNS)

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin has said that his government is contemplating to call an all-party meeting on the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exemption bill depending on the action taken by Governor R.N. Ravi.

Stalin said that there were speculations in the media that the Governor was about to forward the bill to the President of India.

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister while speaking in the floor of the assembly under Rule 110, said that it was already 70 days since the Assembly passed the bill again and sent it to the Governor after it was returned by him.

Stalin said, “ We might convene an all-party meeting if required and discuss the next steps that we have to take.”

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister said that he did not have any personal grudge against the Tamil Nadu Governor R.N. Ravi but said that his party had no choice but to boycott the ‘At Home’ event since the Governor had not forwarded the bill passed unanimously by the state legislative assembly.

He said, “Governor R.N. Ravi is a good person to interact with and we have a very cordial relationship. During personal interactions, he has praised our work and had even praised us in his speeches.”

The Chief Minister however said that a Bill passed unanimously by an assembly that was celebrating its centenary lying unattended in Raj Bhavan is an insult to each and every citizen of Tamil Nadu.

Stalin said that the Governor accorded utmost respect to the DMK government and the DMK also has all respect towards the Governor but added that the Governor not forwarding the Bill passed unanimously by the assembly to the President was an affront to the dignity of the assembly and thereby the people of Tamil Nadu.
