Raising concern over the recent death of NEET aspirants in Tamil Nadu's Madurai, actor-politician Kamal Haasan on Saturday urged the Centre and the Tamil Nadu government to "think of alternatives and implement them expeditiously"

In a tweet, Kamal Haasan said: "What are we going to do to ensure that Jyoti Durga's death is the last in the NEET related deaths? Central and state governments need to think of alternatives and implement them expeditiously. It is our duty to give our children hope and mental strength. Let's do it!"

Jyoti Durga, daughter of sub-inspector Muruga Sundaram, had killed herself in Madurai on Saturday after being concerned about her performance in the entrance exam.

In a recorded audio message, she asked her family to forgive her for the extreme measure she was taking.

In a long letter that has been found in her book, Jyoti Durga has written to her family not to blame themselves and that she is taking this extreme measure out of a fear of failing the exams and not being able to get a seat.

Jyoti Durga's father Muruga Sundaram said that her daughter was preparing well for the NEET examination and in all the exams that she appeared for the NEET classes in a private institution, she had scored well.

Two days ago, NEET aspirant Vignesh had died by suicide. He was to attend the NEET exam this coming Sunday. The Tamil Nadu government had then announced Rs 7 lakh relief to Vignesh's family and also has promised a government job for an eligible member of the family.

The suicides have now triggered protests in Madurai with parents raising slogans against the NEET exam. They also demanded the Centre and the state government to take action and ensure that the future of the students is secured.
