Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday demanded that the State Government prevail upon the Centre to postpone the National Eligibility and Entrance Test for admission into medical colleges for two years.

Talking to media persons at Visakhapatnam before proceeding to Hyderabad after completion of his two-day padayatra being organized as part of Rythu Porubata in Srikakulam and Vizianagaram districts, Naidu said that the introduction of NEET would create problems for medical stream aspirants and they would be at a disadvantageous position due to sudden change in the syllabus and paper pattern.

Naidu said that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy could use his office and prevail upon the Centre to get NEET postponed for two years and protect the interests of Andhra Pradesh students. He said that the examination could be conducted from 2014 under the common syllabus for national level entrance test.

The TDP chief also demanded that the government increase age limit for Sub-inspector posts for three years from 25 to 28 and give a chance for unemployed youth.

Earlier, Naidu conducted a meeting with party rank and file over the strengthening of party in Visakhapatnam district. He asked the district leaders to strengthen the party at the grass root level by taking up various programmes. He also called upon party cadre to intensify agitation against the anti-people policies of government and highlight the failure of government on different fronts. (INN)
