JD(U) flays pact on seat sharing

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: The Janata Dal (United) has condemned the State Government's decision on equal sharing of seats in medical and dental colleges and said it has yielded to the interests of the managements by disregarding the interests of poor and meritorious students.

In a pamphlet issued by the party and addressed to the Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, the JD(U) State unit President, B. Somashekar, said the Government is misleading the public by stating that the loss of seats in medical colleges will be made good with the opening of new government medical colleges. The Government has succumbed to the conditions imposed by the managements of the private colleges, he charged.

The Government, according to him, is not in a position to start six new medical colleges this year. Further, it has failed to provide staff and infrastructure in the existing colleges. The Ministers who supported the equal sharing of seats, are guilty of promoting the interests of the managements. The Chief Minister should ask such Ministers to resign, Mr. Somashekar said.

Members of the JD(U) staged a protest at Mysore Bank Circle here on Saturday and criticised what they called the pro-management policy of the Government.
