Media coverage of Mangalore University, Mangalore Karnataka, Karnataka

Arrest: Did ANF commit a blunder?

Did the Anti-Naxal Force commit a blunder in arresting Vittala, a student of mass communication and journalism from Mangalore University, along with his father Linganna (53) on charges of supporting the CPI (Maoist) and sedition from their house in Kutlur village in Belthangady taluk?

Vittala belongs to the Malekudiya tribe and is the only youth from the ST community to have taken up higher studies. While ANF sources told Deccan Chronilce that with the arrest of Vittala they are trying to get under the skin of the Maoist sympathisers and send a strong message to others with similar affiliations, the Intelligence agencies have strongly criticised the move. This was a wrong move, because the ANF will get further alienated from the villagers in the Malnad region, who are caught between the Maoists and the ANF. The ANF needs their support and goodwill to counter the growing Naxal movement in the state. The Karnataka government should act immediately and implement development activities to improve the socio-economic status of the Malekudiyas, said an Intelligence officer.

He added that the CPI (Maoists) are using the Malnad region for building a strong cadre and strengthening the Karna-taka State Committee, currently headed by Veera-mani alias Gangadhar.

Though Veeramani is a Tamilian, he is conversant with Karnataka including Bengaluru and often visits the City, the officer added. According to the statistics available with the Intelligence Bureau and the ANF, there are around 60 young cadres from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, who are being trained in strategic warfare in the forests of Dakshina Kannada with arms and ammunitions smuggled from the neighbouring states, because entry into Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand has become difficult due to the heavy deployment of the Central Reserve Paramilitary Forces, said the officer.

On March 2, the ANF stumbled upon 10 live training camps of the Naxalites with firearms and explosives after an exchange of fire with the Maoists at Malavantige village in Belthangady taluk, about 75 km from Mangalore in which top Naxal leaders Vikram Gowda and Mundagar Latha were reportedly present.
The Maoists move in small groups (tukdis). Their field craft doesnt allow more members because they can become easy targets, he added.

Mangalore University student writing exam in chains raised in Parliament

The Parliament on Friday witnessed spirited protests over the arrest of a tribal youth from the Dakshina Kannada district who recently wrote examination in handcuffs.

Vittal Malekudiya from Kuthluru in Belthangady taluk, a postgraduate student of journalism in Mangalore University and his father were arrested by the Anti-Naxal Force (ANF), Karnataka, on March 2, for their alleged links with the Maoists.

With permission from the judge, Malekudiya wrote his examination from jail.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, CPM member M B Rajesh from Palakkad in Kerala said: It was a grave injustice and blatant violation of human rights. Rajesh accused ANF of falsely implicating the 21-year-old tribal student and his father.

This student is a member of the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) of which I am an office-bearer, Rajesh said.

He further told the House that Malekudiya s father, Ninganna, was assaulted by ANF personnel on March 2. On being informed, the youth rushed back home from Mangalore and took his father to a hospital.

That is when they were arrested, Rajesh said.

False case

In a bid to avoid charges of atrocities against ANF, they were implicated in a false case of waging war against the state, Rajesh said, demanding a probe into the matter and punitive action against the guilty.

As an evidence of the student s links with the Maoists, they have said in the case that he possessed a Kannada translation of a book by journalist Kuldip Nayar on Bhagat Singh. It is a matter of grave concern that in independent India a person is being put in shame because he has a book on Bhagat Singh, Rajesh told the House.

The incident has been condemned by all sections of the society. A leading Kannada daily, Prajavani, wrote an editorial condemning the human right violation by ANF, he said.

Choose career based on interest: Mangalore University vice-chancellor

MANGALORE: It is imperative for students to select a career depending on their interest, aptitude, personality and their surroundings. Students should avoid selecting a career owing to peer or parental pressure and one must enjoy what they are doing. If one gets paid well in doing so, it is an added bonus. Career choice at the plus two level should be taken with caution, said TC Shivashankara Murthy, the vice-chancellor, of Mangalore University at the inauguration of a career counselling programme here on Sunday.

Reminding students that there is a career beyond professional courses such as engineering and medicine, he said one must also realize immense potential that research in basic sciences offer. Indias only Nobel Prize for research in basic science was bagged by CV Raman for his work on Raman effect, VC said, adding that other Nobel Prizes bagged by Indians settled abroad was also for their research and contributions to areas of basic sciences.

Observing that India churns out nearly 20 lakh engineers each year from 3,460 engineering colleges, VC said as per a survey carried out by the National Association of Software and Services Companies, only 18-20% of them were employable. It is students employability that counts at the end of the day. The employability of graduates and those doing MBA and other professional courses is around 12-20%, he added.

C Suresh Thunga, nodal officer, KEA said the results of CET in all likelihood would be announced on June 6 and the verification round would start from June 13.He exhorted them to report any change in marks on account of revaluation or re-totalling to KEA and obtain an acknowledgement.

Principals would be given a password for uploading the marks. Later they could have the password of their choice by changing it. Students would not be able to see the internal assessment marks on the website. It would avoid the procedure of sending the internal assessment marks manually which took time.
On-line admission

There was common software for making the admission online. The university at its end would install it. Otherwise, the colleges could not make online admissions.

With this, the colleges could send their admission statements to the university online, by avoiding the manual submission, within a given time for the approval of the university.
