News: CENTAC should ensure re-counselling to prof courses: FPR

The Federation for People’s Rights (FPR) here today urged the administration to ensure total re-counselling for admissions to professional courses by the Centralised Admission Committee (CENTAC) in the wake of Madras High Court judgement scrapping reservation of seats for Puducherry region.

In a statement, Federation Secretary G Sugumaran blamed the government for the order saying it did not produce proper documents before the court justifying reservation.

Asking the Puducherry Administration to shoulder responsibility for scrapping of reservation, Mr Sugumaran quoted the judgement that said, ”In the absence of any material placed before this court to justify the reservation of 75 per cent of the seats for the Puducherry region, we are inclined to hold that such reservation is bad in law.

”Accordingly, the reservation in respect of 75 per cent seats for the Puducherry region requires to be set aside.” Mr Sugumaran also alleged the government of failing to give any advice to the Additional Solicitor General who appeared on behalf of the government.
