He said "We build the infrastructure for medical college and we pay salaries to lecturers but NEET exam deprive our students of getting into our colleges, it is also against the federal sector.

We are talking to all the Opposition parties in the country that all these attempts made by the Centre to suppress states should be stopped". We have met the KTR and he said that he will give all the support to stop the NEET exam."
