The Madras High Court today pulled up a section of Tamil Nadu government teachers who are on strike, saying it affected students.

The court then directed the state government to file a report by September 14 on the steps taken to end the protests.Justice N Kirubakaran made the observations on a petition by advocate A P Suryaprakasam, seeking a direction to the state government to form an expert committee to prepare students who scored low marks in NEET (National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test) and provide them moral support.

In his order, the judge said, “Only five government school students from the state have managed to secure medical seats and protesting teachers should feel ashamed of this fact.”

“They should know the responsibility of their duty such persons cannot involve in strikes,” he said.The petitioner submitted that the student community is not only in a state of shock, but also felt let down by the state and central governments.He said it would, therefore, be appropriate and the need of the hour that those state syllabus students who had lost the opportunity of joining medical colleges along with future aspiring students, be counselled by their class teachers or any other school authorities to prevent tragedies such as Dalit student Anitha’s suicide.
