Bangalore: Rajya Sabha member G. Yeddyurappa said Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa should take action to protect the interests of local students C. Chandrasekhar insists.
Candidates who have studied in the State will have to pay a percentage. The development comes after the High Court held that the amendment to the University Law Act, which provides 25 per cent reservation, is illegal.
Ji wrote a letter to the Chief Minister. C. Chandrashekhar, he said, should immediately form a committee consisting of legal experts and take the matter to the Supreme Court to protect the interests of local students.
Last year, only 8 students in the state took a seat at NLSIU. In the letter, Chandrashekhar said only five local students were admitted to IIT-Dharwad.
In such a situation, local students have to pay a cent. The 25 percent reservation is fair, which will help local youth find employment. Most of the 23 national law colleges in the country are reserved for local students.
20% of the NLSSR in Hyderabad and 26 seats in the NLU of Bhopal have been given to local students. Chandrasekhar said that Kolkata NUJS has adopted a 30 per cent reservation system for local students from the next academic year, making it difficult for rural students to compete with urban students in entrance exams conducted by national law colleges, IITs and IIMs.
