Hyderabad | 8th July 2018
The CPI demanded that the Telangana government order a high-level inquiry into the EAMCET 2016 medical entrance test paper leakage scam and the functioning of the Narayana and Sri Chaitanya corporate colleges in the Telugu states.
CPI senior leader Dr K Narayana referred to the recent arrest of a dean of a reputed corporate college in the case of the leakage of the EAMCET medical entrance exam paper in Hyderabad. The scam dated back to 2016, and the arrested dean was not alone in it. In the Telugu states there was a strong feeling among the people about the involvement of the Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges in the paper leakage.
"For decades together these colleges have been controlling the intermediate education in both the Telugu states, and more than half of the intermediate students of the two states are studying in colleges of these two groups of institutions. Every year these institutions secure almost all of the top ranks in the intermediate public exams, as well as in the medical and engineering entrance tests, which is highly suspicious. Indeed, it is a known fact that these institutions use all ways and means to be on the top of the charts. Sometimes they even pay off the top rankers of other institutes and get them to claim that they studied in their own institutions. How else can both institutes claim that a student who secured the top rank studied in their college and give loud advertisements in newspapers and television channels to that effect? These colleges have commercialized education and are charging lakhs of rupees in the name of JEE, EAMCET and NEET intensive coaching. Parents are innocently falling prey to their false propaganda and are enrolling their children in these institutions," he said.
"To continue their monopoly they have corrupted the whole education system from top to bottom. They are also expanding their empire to other parts of India now. Two state governments have been unable to control them. There have been several incidents of students committing suicides in the premises of these two colleges due to the immense pressure and the mental torture meted out by the institutions. It is evident from the fact that an employee of one of these corporate colleges has been arrested only two years after the leakage that the managements of these institutions are very powerful. In fact, the head of one of these institutions is a minister in one of the Telugu states," he added.
Keeping in view the future of lakhs of students, Narayana urged the state government to order a high-level enquiry into the EAMCET 2016 paper leakage scam, and also the functioning of these colleges.
"Take stringent action and measures to bring the education system out from the clutches of these groups," he said.
