So much fake news, outrage, moaning some from our own flock on the #JioInstitute matter. For once let us get into facts. 60 years of Congress Govt. in India & not ONE Indian University is in the list of top 200 World Rankings. Mind you India has 800 Universities as on date. (1)
So Modi Govt. without sleeping/doing nothing like other Govts. frames policy wherein Union HRD Ministry'll identify 20 Universities & grant #InstituteofEminence status. Out of 20, 10 will be public & 10 private run. #InstituteofEminence to cut redtape & give greater autonomy. (2)
Modi Govt. without appointing housemaids like Congress Govts did, prefers *eminent* "Selection Panel" to identify 20 #InstituteofEminence ! Panel - Gopalaswami Ex-CEC, Pritam Singh Ex-Director IIM, Renu Khato Pres, University of Houston, Tarun Khanna. Harvard Business School. (3)
Panel's job is to identify 20(10 Public & 10 Private) Institutes. Govt will fund ₹1000 Crores ONLY to 10 Public Institutes & NOT to 10 Private. Out of 10 Private to be granted #InstituteofEminence there is a Greenfield Category(like quota) that is ONLY for NEW Institutes. (4)
NEW Institute is an Institute that is NOT in existence BUT has all resources to become existent in the immediate future. Only Ambani's #JioInstitute apply for Greenfield Category? NO. 11 Institutes applied under Greenfield Category Airtel's Bharti University, Vedanta, KREA etc(5)
Did #JioInstitute not have merit to get a grant under Greenfield Category for #InstituteofEminence? If you say NO, the panel thought otherwise. Panel felt sponsoring organisation is India’s largest private sector company & the largest corporate spender on social initiatives. (6)
Panel also felt that the Reliance Group had a deep relationship with 50 top universities & has enormous experience of running top educational institutes including Dhirubhai Ambani Foundation Schools & other institutes in which the foundation was involved like (7)
Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information & Communication Technology, Pandit Deen Dayal Petroleum University, IIM Bangalore. Panel that selected #InstitutesOfEminence is much more eminent than people who are howling on Twitter without basic knowledge on the entire process. (8/8)
As per HRD Ministry, Institutes obtaining #InstitutesOfEminence status via Greenfield Category will ONLY get 'Letter of Intent' which states they must set-up within 3 years. Once its setup they get #IOE status, for now #JioInstitute to get ONLY Letter of Intent & NOT #IOE status.
You'd tongues out to obtain #Jio SIM Cards for yourselves & you've problem with #JioInstitute with ZERO knowledge on whats it. Mukesh Ambani obtained merit admission for his B.E in UDCT College(Top Tech Institute in India) Mumbai & raised a billion $ empire. Live with it whiners!
"To anybody who asks me why Jio, my counter question would be why not Jio?" READ, just READ without prejudices to understand how system works.

"People criticizing selection of Jio Institute only because of prejudices: Former CEC N Gopalaswami"

So starting a thread for people who accuse Modi Govt. of being biased towards TN.

1. MUDRA Loan maximum loans allotted to the state of TN.

₹52,499.82 கோடியை மோடி அரசிடம் இருந்து கடனாக பெற்ற தமிழக தொழில் முனைவோர்கள்: முத்ரா திட்டத்தில் தமிழகம் முதலிடம்

2. More than 1 Crore MUDRA Loan Accounts for *women* of Tamil Nadu allotted in 4 yrs. Lakhs of TN women benefitted. Again TN tops this list.

தமிழக பெண்களுக்கு மட்டும் ஒரு கோடிக்கும் மேற்பட்ட முத்ரா கடன் கணக்குகள் : லட்சக்கணக்கான தமிழக பெண்கள் பயனடைவு

3. PM Awas Yojana(Housing for All). TN's Villupuram District total allotment = 59,500(51,500 completed). Again, #1 District in India.

முத்ரா, அனைவருக்கும் வீடு ஆகிய இரண்டு திட்டங்களிலும் இந்தியாவிலேயே தமிழகத்திற்கு அதிக நிதியை ஒதுக்கியுள்ள பிரதமர் மோடி

Professional agitators in Tamil Nadu are so blatant these days that they recruit agitators through a public Facebook post. Is the Govt. listening @CMOTamilNadu sir? For sure innocent jobless youngsters would take up this “agitation profession” that guarantees ₹12,000/month pay!
TN Govt. has done right thing by detaining Professional protestor Piyush Manush. The lies this dolt has been spreading off-late cuts Sorry figure even among people who supported him initially. Recently he gatecrashed Pothys & compromised after getting a cheque of some ₹7 lakhs.
2016 article by Communist Activist on "Professional Protestor" Piyush. One of many deeds is forcible acquisition of lands from poor farmers for biggies/riches in the name of "Coop forest". Collects ₹2.25 Lakhs/acre & compensates ₹25,000/acre. More here.

I am terribly upset with actual facts not taking place in the discourse with regards to NEET Exams for candidates from TN. First let us stick to facts.

In 2017 82,000 candidates appeared for NEET from TN.
In 2018 it is 1,11,500 candidates are appearing for NEET from TN. (1)
Compared to 2017 & 2018 candidates writing NEET has risen by 31% from TN. So, even NEET Exam Centres have been increased to the tune of 25% in TN. Out of 1,11,500 candidates, 110,000 candidates are allotted Exam Centres within TN. (2)
The rest around 1000/1500 were given the nearest available centres in neighbouring cities based out of their choice. Those who are appearing in Delhi/far away cities to write the exam have only been allotted centres out of their choice. Students have opted for these centres. (3)

Have been constantly telling Scheme ≠ Board. Supreme Court clarifies the same; it isn't rocket science anyway! Alas, who should/will take the correct interpretation of the Supreme Court judgement to the people of TN?
Firstly, Supreme Court didn't order #CauveryManagementBoard be set up in 6 weeks, it is absolutely incorrect. Supreme Court commanded a Scheme to be framed in 6-week period. Media/Parties that are supposed to be neutral rather carried a vicious campaign misinterpreting the Order.
What is a "Scheme" & why is it needed? To unearth Constitutional constraints in setting up #CauveryManagementBoard & to clarify the perplexities & create a complete system in place that'll have perpetual succession irrespective of whichever Govt. is in place in the states/centre.
