Opposition AIADMK has criticised the decision of Medical Council of India to hold Common Entrance Test (CET) for admissions to medical colleges across the country in the 2012-13 academic year. Party''s local unit secretary A Anbalagan told newsmen here today that MCI`s announcement for a CET to undergraduate medical courses would hit poor students, particularly those hailing from rural areas. He wanted to know what stand Chief Minister N Rangasamy has taken on the issue and said he should explain the government''s reaction to the injurious decision of MCI`. He also alleged the government was letting liquor barons and liquor product makers earn heavy profits by evading taxes as Maximum Retail Price was not mentioned on labels. Sales tax was imposed at random and did not bring heavy revenue. But products were being sold at a higher price after showing lower price on `proof bottles` on factory prices. He demanded a detailed probe on how this had been going on for nearly eight years and asked the Lt Governor to intervene and save the government against the machinations of liquor producers.
