MLCs plan meet tomorrow if PU valuation row continues

A total of 12 MLCs elected from the teachers’ and graduates’ constituencies from all three major parties have planned to hold a meeting in Bengaluru on Monday to decide their action, if the government fails to resolve the PU evaluation imbroglio.

This was announced by MLC Arun Shahapur at a press conference in the city on Saturday.
Shahapur said that the boycott of evaluation by the PU lecturers in support of their demands had entered the 14th day. But the issue remained unresolved due to lack of co-ordination within the government, the legislator said.

He criticised Kimmane Ratnakar, the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, saying that his decisions were childish.

Shahapur said that lecturers had a responsibility of undertaking the evaluation. But the government had a bigger responsibility of fulfilling the demands of the protesters.
He said that the government was trying to break the unity of the lecturers’ associations in a bid to scuttle the protest.

The MLC questioned as to why writer Baraguru Ramachandrappa held a meeting with the lecturers’ associations.

The legislator also took objection to the manner in which the government held talks with just one teachers’ association to end the boycott of the SSLC evaluation by high school teachers.
Shahapur asked as to why Power Minister D K Shivakumar had met the protesting lecturers, instead of Ratnakar.
