Mysuru, January 23:- With no solution in sight despite the court order, aggrieved students of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) students have threatened to intensify stir. Students of the university, R Veeregowda, Nandish, Muneer Pasha, at a press meet at the Mysuru press club, warned BJP national president Amit Shah, HRD Minister Prakash Javdekar and Ananth Kumar to find a solution to the problem as early as possible. “We will stage a protest in association with various organisations during BJP’s Parivarthana rally which Prime Narendra Modi is likely to attend on February 4,” they warned.
“HRD Minister had assured that the university will not be closed and he would get the UGC accreditation. On the other side, he also directed the UGC to appeal against the KSOU. It shows that the minister is bowing to diktats of a lobby. We condemn Higher Education Minister Basavaraja Rayareddy who is planning to close down KSOU and start up a new varsity,” they said.
