Stalin meets Governor, DMK seeks Ravi’s removal in LS

Chennai / New Delhi: Tamilnadu Chief Minister M K Stalin today called on Governor R N Ravi at the Raj Bhavan here.

According to sources, various key issues were discussed during the meeting.

According to a State government release, Stalin today pressed Ravi to send the Bill seeking exemption from NEET to the President of India.

He sought action on other proposals too. It also said the Governor assured the CM that he would send the Bill to the President,
Meanwhile, DMK MP T R Baalu has urged the Centre to remove Ravi from the post of Tamilnadu Governor. Speaking in Lok Sabha, he said Ravi should be removed from the post since he has put on hold seven Bills. They include the one seeking exemption for Tamilnadu from NEET.
Last week, an otherwise bland meet of Vice-Chancellors saw Stalin and Ravi crossing swords on several issues ranging from education policy to federalism.

While Stalin said the Union government was pushing its ‘regressive and backward ideas in syllabus’, Ravi said those who talk of federalism should remember that India is not a ‘contractual union of disparate people’.
