He said that DMK would extend full cooperation to the ruling party on the NEET exemption attempts, as it did for the jallikattu legislation. He asked the Chief Minister to table and pass a draft legislation in the current Assembly session and get the same approved by the President. This would pave way for the students of Tamil Nadu to be exempted from NEET in the coming academic year, he added.  Stalin also advised the state government to extend the Assembly session, if necessary, to enact the legislation (for NEET) in the current session by invoking the same Constitutional powers it had utilised for jallikattu legislation. 
He accused the BJP government at the Centre for imposing NEET despite the related case was pending before the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court. The DMK, which had passed a resolution demanding the scrapping of NEET in its general council, had deferred a statewide anti-NEET agitation owing to jallikattu protests.
