THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a major shift in the stand of the LDF Government against the self-financing professional colleges run by the Inter-Church Council, Education Minister M A Baby has come out with a fresh proposal.

The govt has asked these managements to set apart 20 percent seats from the 50 percent govt seats for the minority communities. This was announced in the Assembly by the Education Minister stating that the decision was taken to solve the difference of opinions between the Church Council and the government.

This should be considered as a step by the government conceding one of the major demands from the Inter- Church Council. Baby has asked the council to come forward in settling the issue in the backdrop of the new proposal. This proposal will mean that the govt fees will be now applicable only in 30 percent seats in the colleges run by Inter-Church Council.

Baby said in the Assembly that the agreement made between the self-financing medical college managements has been made not in full satisfaction as the LDF Govt has a different kind of policy in dealing with the issue.

But the govt has decided to shift its policies just to solve the crisis.
