PMK wants TN House resolution on reservation in private sector
Chennai, Jul 3 (UNI) Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder S Ramadoss today urged the Tamil Nadu Government to pass a resolution on implementation of reservation in the private sector during the coming budget session of the Assembly.
Tamil Nadu should become a model for other states by passing a resolution on the issue, which had found a place in the UPA Government's common minimum programme, he told a press meet here.
The deemed universities in the state, which were functioning with 'unbridled' powers, were allotting seats only to students from other states and countries, he claimed and urged the government to enact legislation to ensure that not less than 75 per cent of seats were given to students in Tamil Nadu.
He also called for a legislation to ensure admission of children belonging to weaker sections in elite private schools. Such an order had been issued by the Delhi Government, bringing about a revolution in the field of education, he added.
Dr Ramadoss said self-financing colleges in the state should retain only 15 per cent seats under the management quota on the lines of Kerala and urged the government to take necessary steps for this.
Welcoming the state Government's decision to allow people from all castes to become temple priests, he suggested that training should be given to the priests to conduct rituals in Tamil.
