PUDUCHERRY:  The DMK would move High Court seeking an enquiry by CBI or by a retired judge into allegations of irregularities in admissions and recruitment to educational institutions in the Union Territory.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Puducherry DMK convener Dr MAS Subramanian alleged that a scam in both admissions and recruitment has been going on since 2006 and cited the appointment of a computer science lecturer in Pondicherry Engineering College(PEC)  based on forged  caste certificates in 2007.  Providing photo copies of documents as evidence, Subramanian said that the lecturer belonging to scheduled caste community ( as per certificate issued by Tahsildar  Pudukottai, Tamil Nadu)  was appointed as lecturer under the OBC category (Backward class certificate issued by Tahsildar Oulgaret Taluk, Puducherry). The recruitment was for five posts in PEC, which had one post reserved for OBC to which the candidate got appointed and deprived the Puducherry candidate of the job, said Subramanian. 

Furher, Dr MAS Subrmanian alleged the involvement of some ruling party members and added that some officials were taking advantage of it.
