SFI state secretary P Biju has asked the State Government to withdraw from the pact entered into with managements of self-financing medical colleges(SFMCs).
Speaking at a press conference here, Biju alleged that the pact made with the Inter- Church Council allowing 15 percent privilege seats to the SFMC managements, was totally illegal.
By allowing the SFMC managements to admit students to 15 percent seats without considering their position in the entrance rank list, the government was providing an opportunity for the managements to collect capitation fees which had been banned by the Supreme Court.
’By allowing the Inter-Church Council to take into account the marks obtained in the Plus Two examination, the government has violated the norms of the Medical Council of India (MCI),’’ he alleged.
He also said that by providing minority status to all the colleges, almost 173 government seats had been lost. Of this, 17 seats belonged to SC/STs. The government is trying to destroy the aided/government educational sector. Fees have been increased in colleges and universities.
In addition to this, government land is being given to the Muslim League and Christian churches. SFI will organise protests on all college campuses on June 25 and at district centres on June 27.
SFI state president K V Sumesh and vice-president A A Rahim also took part in the press conference.
