On Tuesday, members of Dravidar Kazhagam (DK) staged an agitation against the common entrance test announced by the HRD Minister.
They also demanded Sibal resign as the HRD Minister, as they claim that he has been trying to implement anti-social agendas in education.Durai Chandrasekaran, DK state deputy general secretary said, “Kapil Sibal’s proposal of ‘One Nation One Test’ is against the idea of federalism. His announcement of a common entrance exam for all engineering colleges in the country will affect students from backward and scheduled castes.
In Tamil Nadu, entrance exams for higher studies were abolished after a persistent struggle. We will continue to oppose it until the Union minister rolls back his decision.”
He asked all students , academics and political parties to join the stir.
