Manipal Aug 03:Students all over the Karnataka protesting for the amendment of the carry over system but the government has not taken any action yet. Santhosh Kumar, son of Sunder Jathanna and Prathiba Jathanna from Sagri, a student of Dr. T.M.A. Pai polytechnic Manipal who had 5 backlogs and due to the present carry over system was not allowed to go to the next academic year committed suicide by hanging himself to death in his home on 2nd August.

Today morning polytechnic students gathered in front of the Manipal hospital morgue to see their friend’s body for the last time. Udupi MLA Mr. Pramod Madvaraj visited the morgue and met the students and promised to get them justice. Then the students went to the tiger circle and formed a human chain, blocking all the connecting roads and protested for justice. Students shouted slogans against the government to abolish the present carryover system and re-introduce the previous carry over system which had saved thousands of students educational life.  There was a heated argument between the police and the students for about 20 minutes. Manipal police inspector Ravikumar urged the students not to disrupt the traffic flow and suggested them to go to the DC office and appeal the DC for justice. Students then went to DC office and asked the DC “how many students should die for government to wake up..?” and the DC said the government is working on this case right now and the decision will be taken at the earliest.

Later the student leaders of Polytechnic All College Students Association went to the MLA office as the MLA Mr. Pramod Madvaraj called them to his office in the morning. Pramod Madvaraj spoke to the Advocate General and took an appointment on 8th of this month. Students leaders of Polytechnic ACSA will be going to Bangalore to speak to Advocate General with Pramod Madvaraj.
