Puducherry, Mar 4 (UNI) State DMK convener and former Puducherry Chief Minister R V Janakiraman today demanded that the government make its stance clear on the issue of entrance examination for admission to professional courses in the Union Territory.
In a statement here, Mr Janakiraman said the governmnt should take steps to abolish the entrance examination on the lines of Tamil Nadu, failing which it would be considered that the government was cheating the rural students.
Taking strong exception to the administration's failure to remit tuition fees for the students of the Pondicherry Engineering College (PEC) while it was given to all private colleges where students were selected and admitted through the centralized admission committee as per the announcement of the government, Mr Janakiraman wanted to know whether this happened due to the fault of the government or the top officials.
Claiming that the PEC management had cautioned the students to remit the tuition fees or face consequences, the DMK leader said how could the functioning of PEC violating the government order be allowed.
The Chief Minister and Education Minister should take necessary steps in the issue, he added.
