The DMK MPs TR Balu, Tiruchi Siva and Kanimozhi were among others part of the protest on the site.
“NEET steals dreams from poor and rural students who get good grades in school but fail the NEET exam because they cannot receive private coaching. Students committed suicide for fear of taking this exam in Tamil Nadu,” Siva told reporters here.
The leaders wore face masks that read “Ban NEET, save TN students”.
DMK and the Communist Party of India (M) have also applied for an adjournment in the Lok Sabha for “suicide of 12 young students due to NEET”.
According to the National Testing Agency (NTA), the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) was conducted on Sunday with nearly 85-90 percent of students.
Meanwhile, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for an hour shortly after their meeting after raising obituaries and paying tribute to former members who had recently passed away.
Lok Sabha MPs paid tribute to former President Pranab Mukherjee, legendary Indian classical singer Pandit Jasraj, former Prime Minister of Chhattisgarh, Ajit Jogi, Governor of Madhya Pradesh, Lalji Tandon, Ministers of Uttar Pradesh, Kamal Rani and Chetan Chauhan as well former Union Minister Rahguvansh Prasad Singh and others who recently passed away.
