St Stephen's College has said they have a right to holding interview for all seats but we are saying the right is limited to seats reserved for minority". He further added, "And they (the college) is planning to implement the right on general seats as well. We have sought legal opinion on the right guaranteed to them legally. We are expecting a reply in a few days."
