BANGALORE: Nyaayakkagi Naavu will stage a protest on April 30 against the educational institutions that have gained the deemed status.
The organisation claims that these institutions are misusing their powers, thereby creating their own set of rules and norms.
The members of the organisation on Saturday demanded that these Universities should be brought under the norms of the government.
Institutions were further accused of conducting their own entrance exams and charging very high fees.
The allotment of seats was said to be unfair and that there was encouragement shown to people who are ready to pay huge amounts which was ‘unjust’ towards meritorious students who cannot afford the fees.
Agni Sridhar, the working president of the organisation, at a press conference said, “The Universities are being unfair towards the SC/ ST communities by not providing the allotted 15 per cent of seats assured to them.
The students who are really deserving are also being deprived of seats.” “No one can question these institutions as they enjoy the ‘University’ status.
These institutions are using this as an advantage and are working according to their own rules,” he protested.
The protest is being held on April 30 at the University Grants Commission (UGC) office in the Central College campus demanding that these Universities should be brought under the norms of the government to create a fair education system.
