HYDERABAD: Asking chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to take immediate steps to protect the education sector from further erosion in the state, TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy said that TRS government has set a destructive mechanism in motion to completely wipe out public education system from the State. 

Uttam Kumar Reddy was addressing a public meeting at Shadnagar on Tuesday marking the conclusion of 120-km long padayatra of the National Students Union of India (NSUI) to highlight the poor state of SC, ST, BC and minorities hostels in Telangana. The leader said that TS universities lack faculty, teaching and non-teaching staff, basic infrastructure and other facilities. 

‘KCR has created chaos’

“Rao, who came to power on the promise of KG to PG free education, has created utter chaos in the entire education sector,” he alleged. “The vacancies in various universities and government colleges were not filled and they were made to starve for funds during the last three years. No attention was paid on the maintenance and improvement in the conditions of hostels. Consequently, SC, ST, BC and minorities students were forced to live in inhuman conditions. 

Similarly, poor students were put to misery by not releasing the fee reimbursement dues to private colleges. By doing so, KCR forced closure of hundreds of private colleges. Speaking about Osmania University, Uttam Kumar Reddy strongly condemned TRS Government for its ‘draconian’ orders on forced eviction of students. All the students, who are now being branded as “over-stayers”, have actively participated in Telangana movement. Uttam Kumar Reddy advised Rao not to under-estimate the power of youth.
