Online exams are better in present scenario: Former MLA Vatal Nagaraj

Prime News, Karnataka, Education, Mysuru, january 12:- Kannada activist and former MLA Vatal Nagaraj staged a protest on Tuesday (January 12), urging the state government to conduct online exams for technical course students. He also demanded Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to drop the idea of forming a Maratha Development Board.

Talking to reporters near Hardinge Circle in the city, Vatal said, “I never wanted to become a minister in my life. Our ministers are not sincere in their thinking when it comes to students. The whole education system has become commercialised and lacks vision. Private institutions are looting in the name of donations and fees. Where will the students get the money from? Yediyurappa government has become an “agent” for private institutions. It is because of this support they are so adamant.”

Vatal said, “For the last eight months, students have been learning online and the Department of Education is planning to conduct a regular examination which is quite strange. The government is deliberately troubling students.  What about students who are hundreds of kilometres away?  Students’ hostels are in a total mess with no cleanliness. Given this scenario, conducting online examinations is the best solution. I will go to any extent to support the students.”

Continuing his attack on the state government, Vatal said, “No politician from any political party is supporting the students’ cause. Higher Education Minister Dr C N Aswathnarayan is serious in his approach but is not sincere.  Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar only talks nicely.” (MR/KS)
