Sports, art quota fix for BEd course

Patna, Jan. 6: Various students’ bodies today met vice-chancellor of Patna University Shyam Lal demanding provision of sports and art quota in this year BEd course.

The meeting, which was headed by vice-chancellor, also included pro vice-chancellor S.I. Ahson, dean students’ welfare P.K. Poddar, proctor Sarvendu Kumar and other university officials.

JD (U) student leader Rakesh Kumar, NCP student wing leader Mohammed Tanveer and others represented the students’ bodies.

The university officials called the students’ leaders for meeting after they staged a demonstration in front of the VCs office demanding provision of quota in this year BEd course. Tanveer told The Telegraph: “The university officials after hearing our plea assured us that from next year the university will implement sports, art and culture quota in BEd course.”

The students’ union contention was out of three colleges running BEd course under Patna University. Only Patna Women’s College has implemented sports, art and culture quota while two other colleges Patna Training College and Women’s Training College this year have not provided quota in sports, art and culture categories on university directive.

Tanveer added: “While on one hand the university is stating that this year sports, art and culture quota was not implemented in BEd admission process as they had a directive from the National Council for Teachers Education that total intake of students should not cross the sanctioned seats, the university has failed to implement other directives of NCTE.”
