The Progressive Students-Youth Forum (PSYF), a confederation of left-wing student organisations, has welcomed the state government’s move to question the Bangalore University (BU) Syndicate resolution on the report of the Task Force on BEd colleges.

A press conference was jointly addressed by office bearers of Student Federation of India, Vidyarthi Janata Dal, Dalit Students’ Federation, National Students’ Union of India and Democratic Youth Federation of India on Sunday.

The university was served a show-cause notice to explain the Syndicate resolution that action would be taken against erring colleges based on the Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) reports, instead of the Task Force report.

“We also want the government to immediately remove government nominees who are not eminent educationists as per Section 28(G) of the Karnataka State Universities Act,” a press release from the organisations said.
