Warangal: Deputy chief minister Kadiyam Srihari here on Sunday said that the KG to PG free education programme would be implemented from the coming academic year (2015-16).


“A series of meetings with the educationalists, teachers, intellectuals and other stakeholders will be held in order to evolve a policy which will be acceptable to all with regarding to the KG to PG education programme,” he said and added that he is very much committed to provide quality education to the poor students who study in the government schools and residential schools in the state.


Answering several queries at the "Meet the Press" programme organised  at Press Club, Hanamkonda, Kadiyam Srihari, however, had not made any comment on the appointment of the regular vice-chancellors to several universities in the state.



“Since I have taken charge (as the education minister) recently, I need at least two months to study," he added.



The deputy CM has also said that they were analysing the news in the print media  every day adding that many news papers are wrongly presenting the issues and developments.



“While an issue makes a banner story for one paper, it may become a inside story for another paper and it may not be found in some other paper, The values of the press are also falling like politics,” he alleged.


Rebuttal to MRPS leader Manda Krishna’s allegations:


The Deputy CM has also refuted the allegations made by MRPS leader Manda Krishna against TRS government and chief minister  K Chandrashekar Rao about the removal of T Rajaiah from the cabinet.


“Manda Krishna is an unstable person. He lost the faith of his own colleagues in the Dandora movement. That is why his  organisation MRPS has been tattered,” he said and made it clear that Krishna can not dictate the terms to chief minister  with regard to the appointment of the ministers.



“It is the prerogative of the CM whom to appoint or remove  as the  ministers. No one can question this power,” he added.


He also said that KCR had done justice to Madiga community  by appointing him as the minister as he belonged to a sub-caste of Madiga.


“Manda Krishna himself stated that the sub-castes of Madiga were backward than Madiga caste," he added.
