ABVP’s public movement against education bill

via Newindpress published on April 21, 2006

DAVANAGERE: The Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) will launch a public movement against the Karnataka Professional Education Institutions Bill-2006 on April 30 at Davanagere, as it will be the death knell for poor meritorious students, said Prabhudev Kappagal, state ABVP secretary.

Addressing media persons here on Thursday, Prabhudev said the Bill if implemented will dash the hopes of higher education for poor students.

Although there was ample opportunity for the State government to set up a single window system of central CET for professional courses in the State as per the Supreme Court order, giving permission for private professional colleges to conduct their own CET exams was a foolish point included in the present Bill. Thereby nearly 85 per cent seats will be under the control of private colleges.

As per the new Bill, the Government will conduct CET exams for 4,823 seats which include 4,334 engineering, 450 medical and 50 dental seats available in government and aided institutions. This will help private colleges to fill up 45,000 seats, depriving poor students, he feared.

As there will be no transparency in the private CET exams, only students with money can afford it. Conducting two CET exams was a clear violation of the Supreme Court order, he added.
