DVS alleges marks card scam in RGUHS, seeks Lokayukta probe

Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, D V Sadananda Gowda on Thursday said that a massive marks card scandal was continuing in the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS).

Citing instances of two students, one of whom is from the Rajarajeshwari Medical College, Bangalore, Gowda said the university has been passing students, though they had failed in some subjects. Such a thing is happening at all the colleges affiliated to RGUHS, he added.

Gowda said that Harshitha of Rajarajeswari Medical College had failed in anatomy and physiology papers in June 2012 examinations. Subsequently, she went for a re-totalling of the marks of the two subjects, but was again declared failed.

“However, when the marks cards were issued by the university in December 2012, Harshitha had passed in the two papers,” he said.

Appeal

The former chief minister appealed to the medical education minister to order a Lokayukta probe into the marks card scandal, which he said, is not limited to one or two students but involved several hundreds.

JD(S) leader M C Nanaiah said the government must study whether the administrative authorities of the university will come under the ambit of the Lokayukta Act before ordering any inquiry. Gowda also claimed that a Rs 266-crore scam had taken place in Karnatak University, Dharwad.
