The revenue Minister Ambika Chaudary said that 23 such colleges would be set up during the current financial year, one dozen in the next year financial year and the remaining 23 in the year 2015.
With the implementation of this new scheme, the need of all the blocks which were so far not supplied by degree colleges would be addressed. He also said that there are 553 degree colleges in the state.
The Social Welfare Minister said that a committee has been set up to look into this matter. Infact this matter has been recommended to the Centre and the decision on the issue is to be taken finally by the Centre.
Swami Prasad Maurya, purely dissatisfied with ministers statement, accused the Government of misleading the people by indulging in cheap popularity. He sought to know the need of setting up a committee to look into the matter, when the government had already taken such a decision with the approval of the Cabinet.
He said, the setting up of the committee was nothing but a mischief to befool the people of these communities, who would neither be able to avail benefits of SC/ST nor that of other backward classes.
