Students, officials urge Javadekar for recognising KSOU

Students, officials urge Javadekar for recognising KSOU

Bengaluru, Oct 13 (UNI) Students and Officials of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) today urged Union Minister for Human Resources Development Prakash Javadekar to intervene and exert pressure on University Grants Commission (UGC) to accord recognition for the courses offered by KSOU. Mr Javadekar, who is also BJP election Incharge in Karnataka was here today to preside over the State Core Committee meeting at the Party office Jaganath Bhavan. The affected Students and KSOU officials met Mr Javadekar and submitted a memorandum to him and also to two other Union Ministers D V Sadananda Gowda, H N Ananth Kumar, besides to BJP state President and Lok Sabha member B S Yeddyurappa and to Opposition leader in the Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar. Mr Javadekar assured them that he will take the issue seriously and will convene a special meeting on October 17 to discuss the issue and find a solution. The future of more than three lakhs students are at stake following the UGC de-recognised the courses since last year and KSOU was banned from registering for new courses and also de-recognised the courses offered so far. Former Karnataka Minister S A Ramadas, who lead the delegation. said "Mr Javadekar has been apprised about the issue. The future of lakhs of students were at stake for no fault of theirs, and though hundreds of KSOU students have written to the authorities, their words have fallen on deaf ears." KSOU Students and officials, who came in buses from Mysuru, Mandya and other Districts to meet Mr Javadekar, told newsmen that their agitation will continue till the UGC accords recognition. A couple of days back an affected student had written a letter to President Ram Nath Kovid urging for mercy killing since he had been denied job despite passing PG from KSOU. Karnataka Minister for Higher Education Basavaraj Rayareddy, who urged the UGC to recognise the KSOU courses as future of lakhs of students at stake, told newsmen recently that he had written several letters to the concerned Union Minister in this regard but went in vain.
