BJYM wants SFCs to follow quota


PALAKKAD: Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leaders have said that it would not allow the self-financing colleges which attained minority status to deny reservations as applicable in other colleges.

Charging exorbitant capitation fee from the students also will not be allowed, they said.

Addressing mediapersons on Friday, BJYM state president K Surendran and general secretary P Venugopal said that the self-financing colleges were clamouring for minority status to avoid admitting members of the majority community and to collect fees as they liked.

When 90 percent of the educational institutions in the state are being run by the minorities and they are not answerable to the government it could lead to a situation that students from the majority community are kept away from higher education.

The LDF Government should control the self-financing college managements before they divide the people of the state on the basis of religion, they urged.

BJYM state committee will meet in Ernakulam on Sunday to chalk out agitation plans against the colleges.

Surendran alleged that seven MLAs of the ruling and Opposition fronts and a Rajya Sabha member were listed as encroachers of government property in the report submitted to the office of the Chief Minister.

He pointed out that since a case had been registered against R Geetha of the Forensic Science Laboratory in the Abhaya case, she should be suspended from service.
