Mysuru, January 6:- “The credit for introducing Common Entrance Test (CET) to provide the students of all castes and categories with opportunities goes, to former chief minister and senior Congress leader Dr M Veerappa Moily,” said MLA Vasu.
He was speaking at the valedictory programme of annual co-curricular activities of Maharaja PU College at the auditorium of the college on Saturday.
“Understanding the importance of education for students of poor family, Moily opened CET centre in Bengaluru and provided the students with opportunity to study engineering and medical courses. With his contribution, the engineers and doctors of Karnataka are working even in America, Australia and other foreign countries,” he added.
“Earlier engineers and doctors were being provided with jobs at factories and in private hospitals. But the situation has now changed. It is difficult even for those who have passed with higher grades to get government jobs. More than education, wisdom and decision making abilities will help one to come up in life,” Vasu said.
He felicitated students who had excelled at state and national-level sports events.
B S Sridhar Raje Urs, S Sujatha, V Siddaiah and others were present.
