Puducherry: The Opposition CPI has demanded
that the Vaithilingam led Congress ministry quit office owning
responsiblity for the `bungling` created in admission of
students to professional courses in the Union territory`.
CPI national council member R Viswanathan told reporters
here that Madras High Court had set aside the 75 per cent
quota of reservation for Puducherry region and stated that
such reservation was unconstitutional and bad in law.
Hence owning responsiblity of an `unconstitutional act`, the
Congress ministry here should quit office. (The court has
upheld reservation for Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam regions as the
government had adduced reasons for this step).
N Kalainathan MLA and Secretary of local unit of CPI who
was present, said the CPI had been opposing such reservation
as this would only deprive students of equal opportunities. He
said his party would evolve future course of action to oppose
short sighted approach of the Congress Ministry here`.
