The following extracts are from Newindpress, What I am seeing is the Karnataka govt take some good initiative for we Belgaumites irrespective of being either Kanaada or Marathi, must be welcomed.
6 new Marathi medium DEd collages is a welcome gesture news but why not our district representative (local politicians) who had taken language divede as a major issue than development are not understanding this.
Belgaum deserve still more, I remember in 1986 when the bus boards of CBT used to be in Kannada Marathi and English and route number use to be in middle. the inegrity of Belgaumites is more important then language and if Belgaum develop its we the Belgaumites to get benefit of it.
At present, the district has 11 Marathi D.Ed colleges and the government has sanctioned 6 more for Marathi medium. The total number of students from Marathi D.Ed colleges would be 1380 for every two years. However, over the last three years the government has provided job opportunities only to 350 students. The Urdu medium D.Ed students are also sailing in the same boat.
The input of each college is 50 students out of, which 25 seats are being filled by government and 25 are from management quota. However, the private managements, which have opted for the D.Ed colleges, are not able to get the students as there is a sudden decrease in the number of students seeking admission, due to more number of colleges in the district.
