The Karnataka Rakshana Vedike submitted a memorandum to Labour Minister B.N. Bachegowda demanding an inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) and the appointment of staff members in ITI.

The vedike said the posts of lecturers, principals, and other non-teaching staff were vacant in Uttara Kannada. A new ITI had been started at Ankola but the posts for trainers were vacant, they said.

The vedike said in Ankola, ITI money had been extracted from the students during admission and issuance of the hall tickets for examinations.

During selection of the students, although there was no demand for the seats reserved for the girl students, the vacant seats were not allotted to boys.

But later the seats were allotted to students close to the staff members by taking money.

The memorandum was submitted to the Labour Minister through the Deputy Commissioner of Uttara Kannada under the leadership of vedike's district unit president N. Datta.
