The Government of Tamil Nadu has brought in a 7.5 percent allocation for medical education for students studying in government schools. The bill was passed in a series of assembly meetings last month.
The bill was sent to the governor for approval. A month later some of the senior ministers went and urged the governor to get the governor’s approval.
Opposition leader MK Stalin also demanded approval of the bill.
To these demands, Governor Banwarilal Purohit had responded. He noted that the bill needed to be examined from many angles. Yet political pressure continued to be put on the governor.
Governor Banwarilal Purohit has approved a 7.5 percent quota bill to provide a place in medical education for students in government schools.
It is learned that the Solicitor General had replied to the letter written by Governor Banwarilal Purohit on September 26 only yesterday and after hearing the opinion of the Solicitor General, Governor Banwarilal Purohit has given his approval today. As the Governor has approved the bill, there is a possibility of starting a medical consultation in Tamil Nadu soon.
