Chennai sources have added that the Madras High Court today pulled up a section of Tamil Nadu government teachers who are on strike, saying it affected students. The court then directed the state government to file a report by September 14 on the steps taken to end the protests. Justice N Kirubakaran made the observations on a petition by advocate A P Suryaprakasam, seeking a direction to the state government to form an expert committee to prepare students who scored low marks in NEET and provide them moral support.

Furthermore in his order, the judge said, "Only five government school students from the state have managed to secure medical seats and protesting teachers should feel ashamed of this fact."

According to sources he said it would therefore be appropriate and the need of the hour that those state syllabus students who had lost the opportunity of joining medical colleges along with future aspiring students, be counseled by their class teachers or any other school authorities to prevent tragedies such as Dalit student Anitha's suicide.

About the author

I describe myself with the word peculiar because I think in different ways than what other people usually think and I consider myself a cheerful and optimist girl, I usually have a positive attitude facing life. Academically I'm interested in writing specifically news and short stories. I'd like to revolve around writing which I fondly called The art of words. I have found enjoyment in reading and solving puzzles too.
