The Centre issued the ordinance following clearance from the Union Cabinet this morning. Talking to reporters, Union health Minister JP Nadda said, ”Some states have issues, I assure all that we will resolve the matter very soon.”
The NEET issue is still being reviewed, he added. The ordinance needs to be approved by the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, to come into effect.
However, a petition was filed against the Centre’s move in the Supreme Court.
This isn’t in the interest of the students or the nation, we will challenge this ordinance, said Amit Kumar, petitioners’ lawyer challenging the NEET ordinance
