HYDERABAD:PDSU activists staged a dharna before C-Block in the Secretariat on Thursday protesting the government’s  proposal to construct apartments to the poor in 11 acres land belonging to the Osmania university.

The activists entered the Secretariat during visiting hours and staged a protest before the Chief Minister’s Office. They alleged that Rao was trying to privatise Osmania University.

Later speaking to media, PDSU leader Satya alleged that allotting OU lands for houses was a ploy to destroy the prestigious and historic university.

She said that Osmania University students played a key role in Telangana movement. With a view that the students of OU would question the government in future, the government was diluting the importance of the university. Rao had no sincerity towards the poor.

The agitating students were arrested by the Saifabad police and shifted to police station and later let off.

Meanwhile, a delegation of OU students are likely to meet the governor , who is also the Chancellor of the University, seeking his intervention in the issue and to ensure that University lands are not taken.
