Plus One admission: Opposition stages walkout from assembly

assembly-

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Congress-led UDF staged a walkout from the Kerala Assembly on Monday following a commotion over the Plus One admission. General Education Minister V Sivankutty said that all the students, who have applied for Plus One admissions, will be able to get admission through the second spot allotment. However, the opposition said that more seats must be allowed and that seats should be allotted based on the number of applicants in each area.

Replying to Shafi Parambil's notice on an adjournment motion, minister V Sivankutty said that more batches cannot be allowed. He said that 4,69,219 students have applied for admissions through the single-window system for a total of 2,71,736 seats. He added that 1,92,959 seats, including vacant seats in the sports quota, will be allocated newly in the general category.


However, the opposition stated that nearly two lakh children are worried about getting admission as the number of Plus One seats in the state is inadequate. Shafi Parambil also demanded that additional seats in Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Idukki, Kottayam and Ernakulam districts should be shifted to other places.


In his walkout speech, Opposition leader V.D. Satheesan alleged that two and three lakhs are being charged for management seats and that even those who secured A + in all subjects are finding it difficult to get admission.
