HYDERABAD: The Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) which has been questioning the existence of AP State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) from the beginning, took no time to prove its authority over common assets of the council, once Hyderabad High Court gave its verdict in favour of Telangana.

Even before the Andhra Pradesh could react, the TSCHE made a quick move and occupied the entire common office building of councils at Masab Tank! The three storey building where both the State councils have functioned till recently is now completely occupied by TSCHE. 

TSCHE chairman, T Papi Reddy was quick to shift his chamber from third floor of the building to the chamber of APSCHE chairman, Prof L Venugopal Reddy in the first floor. Earlier, first and second floors of the building were allotted to APSCHE while TSCHE had only third floor for its office space.

Interestingly both the Chairman and Vice Chairman of APSCHE were not present at their office during this ‘shifting’. Both of them didn’t come to office after Thursday, the employees at the council said. They were also not available for comment when Express tried to contact them.

“From today onwards, all the employees of higher education council will report to the TSCHE,” Papi Reddy said. Their salaries will also be paid by the Telangana government, he added. There are around 40 employees working at the council office who served both the State councils after the formation of TSCHE.  Meanwhile, AP government is all set to file a petition in the Supreme Court to challenge the High Court’s verdict. HRD Minister of AP, Ganta Srinivasa Rao, on Friday said that the State government is now taking legal opinion to decide the course of action.
