Supreme Court refuses to stay NEET ordinance

Published

New Delhi, May 27 : The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay the NEET ordinance, saying that its validity on the ground it violated Article 14 of the constitution could be challenged when the court opened after the summer break.

An apex court vacation bench of Justice Prafulla C. Pant and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, while declining to pass any interim order, said that anything at this stage would create further confusion.

“It will create further confusion,” the bench said.

The court was hearing a public interest suit by one Anand Rai contending that the May 24 ordinance was brought to upset the April 28 judgement of the top court laying down a ‘one nation one test’ for admission to undergraduate medical courses across the country.

Opposing the plea for staying the ordinance, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said that it was promulgated to accommodate states like Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh, who have already held there state-level entrance examinations for admitting students in government medical colleges and filled the quota of government seats in private medical colleges.

The Supreme Court had earlier ruled that admission to MBBS/BDS courses would be done only through National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and scrapped the entrance tests conducted by the state governments and private medical colleges.

The court had revived NEET after recalling its 2013 order by which the common entrance test was declared unconstitutional.

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav Sad

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
