The SFI state secretariat has termed as baseless Education Minister Abdu Rabb’s claim that students who have passed the SSLC stream with high marks had not lost any Plus I seats following the granting of parity to CBSE students.

The secretariat said in a statement that when the Plus I admission was over, 227367 students were left out without having secured admission. Over 2 lakh students have to depend self-financing institutions for higher studies paying huge fees.

Muslim League has tried to sabotage the public sector institutions. While CBSE and ICSE students had the opportunity to continue education at their respective schools till the 12 standard, they were opting to join the state schools with good track record, SFI said.Demanding to expedite admission to those  students who had completed standard X in state schools, the SFI would take out a march to the Higher Secondary Directorate on  July 2, the statement said.
