TRS leader and MLA T Harish Rao blamed government's apathy for non-allocation of additional seats for three prestigious medical colleges - Gandhi, Osmania and Kakatiya - in the Telangana region.

Speaking to mediapersons after meeting chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in this regard along with some TRS leaders, he said grave  injustice had been done to the Telangana region, while Seemandhra regions were not only getting more medical seats but also additional medical colleges.

"We strongly protest such neglect on the part of the government and demand that it rectify the lapse and ensure Telangana gets more medical seats and medical colleges," he said.

Meanwhile, TRS leader and former MP B Vinod Kumar has demanded that the chief minister should camp at Delhi and build pressure on the Prime Minister's office to get 150 additional medical seats (each 50)to the three government medical colleges in Telangana.

The TRS leader reached Delhi on Tuesday and met Medical Council of India (MCI) secretary professor Sanjai Srivastava and discussed the seats issue.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member Palvai Govardhan Reddy has asked the ministers and MLAs from Telangana to stop crawling before Kiran Kumar Reddy, who, he alleged, had released water from the Nagarjuna Sagar dam to the Krishna delta undermining the interests of the Telangana people.

It was not fair on the part of the government to give water to Krishna delta though the water level in the Sagar dam was below the dead storage level, he said at a press conference.
