The resolution criticised the opposition DMK saying the earlier UPA Government in which it was a part had introduced the NEET exam, which has witnessed a series of suicides by medical aspirants in the state.

The other resolutions included demand for inclusion of a representative from the state in the culture committee formed by the Centre and reiteration of the government's stand on the two language policy currently adopted by the state.

The ruling party has very clearly stated that the mother tongue - Tamil, and English will be the main focus and that they are going to stick with the current two language policy in the state.
