    Senior BRS leader B Vinod Kumar expressed concerns about the impact of the NEET examination on Telangana students. He highlighted that when the Act was introduced by the Central government in 2010, various states including Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, and Jammu and Kashmir opposed it and took the matter to the Supreme Court in 2013 and 2016.

    Vinod emphasized that many students in Telangana are facing uncertainty due to irregularities in the NEET exam. Approximately 1.4 lakh students from Telangana appeared for the exam, raising questions about why students in Telangana should suffer consequences for mistakes made in other states like Gujarat, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Maharashtra.

    He pointed out that Telangana students are losing out on seats in medical colleges due to the ‘all-India Quota pool’. For instance, out of the 30 PG medical colleges in the state, only ten are government colleges with 50% of seats falling under the all-India Pool Quota, resulting in a loss of 621 seats for state students.

    Vinod also raised concerns about Article 371-D which affects the eligibility of state students for PG medical courses if they study MBBS in other states. This restriction is hindering medical education opportunities for Telangana students. He urged the government to seek a review of the 2018 Supreme Court order and advocate for the state government to conduct the examination.
