A former Tamil Nadu Minister has given a statement that can only be described as one of the most bizarre statements from any politician. DMK MLA KN Nehru said, “If we were unable to get exemption in NEET, we would certainly allow cheating for students if we were in power.” Nehru asked, “You allow copying in Bihar, MP and it’s all done openly. Why?” Further, he asked, “For how long will Tamilians remain honest?”

KN Nehru, along with many leaders from the opposition were seen protesting and seeking President’s assent over Tamil Nadu Bill seeking an exemption for the State from the NEET exam.
