They take out a procession in Gulbarga

GULBARGA: Members of the Dalit, Backward and Minorities Vidyarthi Okkuta of Gulbarga University on Friday demanded that the State Government permit fourth semester postgraduate students to write an examination to be conducted by the Karnataka Public Service Commission for selection of 2,450 lecturers in government junior colleges.

Procession

The postgraduate students took out a procession to the Deputy Commissioner’s office and submitted a memorandum addressed to the Governor.

They said that the fourth semester students would be deprived of a recruitment opportunity if they were not allowed to write the examination.

Memorandum

The memorandum said pending their results, students of the fourth semester should be permitted to write the examination. If the rules did not permit the KPSC to allow them to appear for the examination, the recruitment process should be cancelled and it could be done after the completion of midterm elections to the State.

The memorandum urged the Government to drop the proposed plan to give permission to open 2,500 private schools.

More government schools should be opened for the benefit of poor students.

The okkuta demanded that the State Government include psychology as a subject in pre-university colleges and appoint subject teachers in such colleges.

Compulsory

In all the new pre-university colleges in the State, psychology should be made a compulsory subject, the okkuta said.
