BANGALORE: Suspecting large scale irregularities in the allotment of PG and UG medical seats through the COMED-K, the opposition members in the Legislative Assembly on Friday demanded an inquiry into the issue.

The issue was raised when the government tabled the Bill that allowed continuation of its consensual agreement with the COMED-K to fix the seat matrix and the fee structure for the year 2012-13. Congress member Dr Sharanprakash Patil accused the private colleges of turning the seat allotment into lucrative business by indulging in unethical practices.

According to him, the private colleges create scope for brilliant students  to write exams and get allotted seats through the COMED-K counselling. “Then they make these students surrender the seats at the last moment so that they can allot them to others by taking huge sums. This has been going on for years. But the government is not interested to stop it,” Patil charged.

He also questioned the way of conducting the COMED-K exams. Another Congress member DK Shivkumar demanded the government to set up a House Committee to look into the admission methodology of private managements. Congress members Prakash Hukkeri, Eshwara Kandre, NL Narendrababu, Dr Sudhakar made similar demands.

Law and Parliamentary Affairs minister Sureshkumar said  the government will consider the suggestions of the members next year.Chief minister D V Sadanand Gowda will hold a meeting with the COMED-K representatives today.
