Activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad staged a demonstration outside JG College of Commerce at Vidyanagar on Thursday against the amendments to the Karnataka State Universities Act, 2000.
They blocked the road for some time, which affected the traffic.
ABVP office-bearers said that the amendments would benefit vested interests and the State government had not held a detailed discussion on the issue.
They said that the move to appoint two MLAs and one MLC to the syndicates of universities was politically motivated. It would lead to politicisation of the education sector, they alleged.
They said that only academicians should be appointed to syndicates and the government should withdraw the amendments.
They urged the government to provide representation to students representatives in the syndicate.
