HC notice to minority B.Ed colleges

HYDERABAD Jan. 28. C.Y. Somayajulu, Judge of the AP High Court, on Tuesday admitted a writ petition complaining that the authorities were not taking any action to prevent two Muslim minority B.Ed colleges from conducting private entrance test in a hurried manner prejudicial to the interests of poor students from the community.

The writ petition was filed by Basheer Jahan and two other Muslim candidates. They informed the Court that in the first week of January, the Anwarul-Uloom College of Education, Hyderabad, the Khader Memorial College of Teaching Education, Miryalaguda, called for applications from the students who qualified in the Common Entrance (Ed-CET) 2002. The petitioner said that in the third week both colleges gave advertisements asking the students to appear for private entrance examination conducted by them within the 48 hours.

They requested the Court to appoint an enquiry officer not less than the rank of a Principal Secretary as was done in the case of the Deccan Medical College which exposed the non-transparent admission procedure. Justice Somayajulu issued notices to the respondents and admitted the writ petition and directed the management to keep a seat vacant for each petitioner.
