‘Extend jurisdiction of KSWU to all districts'

Staff Correspondent

BIJAPUR: Karnataka State Women's Commission Chairperson C. Manjula has said that the commission will pressure the Government to extend the jurisdiction of the Karnataka State Women's University (KSWU) to the 30 districts of the State.

At an interaction programme with students of the university here on Thursday, she said the university was set up based on the recommendations of the D.M. Nanjundappa committee report to redress regional imbalances. If the jurisdiction of the university was not extended to all the districts, the very purpose of establishing it would not be served, she said.

The Government would also be appealed to introduce new scholarship schemes for talented, poor, Backward Classes and minority community students studying in the university.

As the number of people living with HIV/AIDS was on the rise in Bijapur and Bagalkot districts, the Government would be urged to construct residential schools for children of such people in the two districts, Ms. Manjula said.

Expressing concern over the increasing number of girls going missing in the region, she said the commission was studying the issue and would try to find solutions to it.

University Vice-Chancellor Geeta Bali was present.
