MYSORE: Refuting the allegations of Medical Education Minister S A Ramadas, Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) Vice-Chancellor K S Rangappa denied that the varsity has entered into collaboration with dubious institutions.

 “Ramdas must realise that this will jeopardise the fate of three lakh students enrolled with the KSOU,” he said while addressing the press here on Tuesday.

 Rangappa sought to aver that the courses and MoU are being run in concordance with the KSOU Act and that the statutes have been approved by the chancellor.

 “The varsity has taken legal opinion from the Additional Solicitor General, which has opined that approval of any regulatory body is not needed for KSOU to start technical courses,” he said.

 He said that the KSOU is ready to face any probe ordered by the government.

 “Why should the University get permission to run degree courses when it is approved by the UGC?” he asked, citing that the KSOU has recognition from the Distance Education Council till April 2013.

 He vehemently denied charge that courses are started without informing the same to the Governor and the government. “We have received a letter from the Chancellor’s office and will answer many queries with supporting documents.”
