STUDENT ISSUES: MLAs E. Pratap Reddy and L. Venkata Swamy submit a memorandum on behalf of the students to Collector Mukesh Kumar Meena in Kurnool on Monday.

KURNOOL: Students, led by BC, SC, ST and Minorities Vidyarthi Samakhya, staged a demonstration alleging violation of rule of reservation in admission to degree courses in KVR Women’s College here on Monday.

Samakhya State president Laxmi Narasimha said the college authorities did not follow the roster but filled the seats according to their wishes. The union planned to launch an agitation highlighting the lapses in the admissions.

Scholarships

Meanwhile, school students led by the samakhya organised dharna at the Collectorate urging the authorities to sanction scholarships. The union leaders said the government promised to give scholarships to BC students on par with minority and SC, ST students on the eve of election. But the promise was yet to be honoured.
