Venkatesan wrote to the President on January 19, 2023, expressing his anguish at the fact that Tamil Nadu’s bill seeking exemption from NEET has been pending for more than 15 months after being passed by the state assembly in September 2021. This has caused great mental stress and hardship for parents and students in Tamil Nadu. He also enclosed a copy of a memorandum submitted to the President by Prince Gajendra Babu, general secretary of the State Platform for Common School System.

Venkatesan received a reply from the President of india office on 2 March, 2023, stating that his letter had been forwarded to the Home Ministry for action. The Home Ministry replied to an RTI petition filed by Gajendra stating that the letter from Venkatesan had not been received by them.

“This is really shocking. Such a gap between the President’s Secretariat and the MHA on a crucial issue concerning the future of lakhs of students of TN is painful,” Venkatesan said. He requested the President to intervene immediately and ensure that the bill is passed quickly.

Meanwhile, the Madurai district secretary of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), G Bala, said that the students’ wing has decided to hold a protest against the missing letter at the Home Ministry’s end.

The current time is June 23, 2023, and Venkatesan has said that he will decide on the future course of action after receiving a response from the President.
