VIJAYAWADA: The Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU) has demanded that the government immediately conduct EAMCET counselling and also release the fee reimbursement arrears for the academic year 2013-14.

Students from various colleges, led by PDSU, took out a rally from MG Road to NTR Circle here Monday, demanding that the government provide clarity on engineering and medical counselling.

PDSU state president A Ravindra urged chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu to hold talks with his Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhara Rao in this regard and observed that there was a possibility of students migrating to colleges outside Andhra Pradesh if the counselling was delayed.

He said that there were about four lakh students who were waiting for the counselling and added that the government has to pay `2,500 crore to the colleges under the fee reimbursement scheme for the year 2013-14.

PDSU city secretary P Govardhan, city vice-president I Rajesh, assistant secretary Ch Vamsi, members Prabhu, Ramesh and students from different colleges participated in the rally.
