‘Govt Yet to Take Final Decision’
State Transport Minister and senior Congress leader Ramalinga Reddy said on Thursday that the government is yet to take a final decision on the implementation of Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of admission and determination of fee) Act 2006.
After attending an event in Bangalore University on Thursday, Reddy told reporters that the issue was discussed even in Thursday’s cabinet meeting.
“After much discussion, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah decided to meet the ministers concerned and it is scheduled to be held on Friday,” he said.
However, the minister said CET was implemented to support poor meritorious students and the final decision will be whatever may done will be in the interest of students.
‘Will Help BU’
Reddy also assured the Bangalore University of extending help in providing transportation to its Jnana Bharathi campus.
Bangalore University had recently decided to withdraw the transportation facility to Jnana Bharathi campus provided by the university. They cited financial burden as the reason for this.
Reddy said he was unaware of this and has asked the Vice-Chancellor and his team discuss the issue with him. He added that the Managing Director of the Transport Department would be asked to help find a solution for this.
