Fee reimbursement: Uttam censures KCR
Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy has strongly condemned the TRS Government for not clearing the fee reimbursement dues of over 14 lakh students in the state.
Addressing a hugely attended students’ rally “Vidyarthi Garjana”, organised by National Students Union of India, at Mahabubnagar on Tuesday, the TPCC President said that the fee reimbursement dues were not cleared despite giving several assurances. “This clearly shows that either Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is not serious on clearing the dues or the state’s exchequer is completely empty,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy slammed the Chief Minister for not responding to the ongoing protest by lakhs of students and their parents who are demanding immediate payment of fee reimbursement dues which are pending for the last two years. Further, families of nearly 2.5 lakh staff of private colleges are almost starving due to non-payment of salaries for the last 4-6 months. The TPCC chief resolved that the Congress workers would not rest until the state government clears entire dues of nearly Rs 3,000 crores towards fee reimbursement dues.
The meeting was also addressed by party MLAs DK Aruna, G Chinna Reddy, NSUI National President Amrita Dhwaj, TPCC Vice-President Dr Mallu Ravi, DCC President Obaidullah Kotwal, Municipal Chairman Radha Amar and other senior leaders.
