BANGALORE: The Bangalore University had organised a meeting with the principals of its affiliated colleges on Monday to discuss about the implementation of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), which the university has decided to implement from this year.

After the meeting, Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda told reporters, “There were some queries from principals and we have clarified them. There is no disturbance in the existing system and it will continue as it is and candidates will have an option to exit from the course after two years with an Honours degree.” Prof Gowda also clarified, “What we are doing is different from Delhi University and we don’t need to take permission from the University Grants Commission (UGC) for that. Being a university, we have right to confer degrees.”

In the meeting, principals from 350 colleges participated and even some senior teachers were present.

Campaign in College

Political parties tried to take advantage of this meeting. Politicians from all parties gathered at Central College campus to seek votes of teachers who are the voters for the upcoming teachers and graduates constituency elections.

BJP leaders, including Union Minister H N Ananth Kumar, former ministers R Ashok and C T Ravi and many others were present. Reacting to it, Prof Gowda said, “When the BJP people came, our meeting had not yet started and I was still on my way. But leaders of other parties tried to enter the meeting hall after the meeting started. So, I strictly told them not to enter the hall till the meeting is over.”
