Naidu Can’t Claim a Share in 50 Percent NIT Local Seats: Kadiam
- Telangana should get those 50 percent seats
- Not Andhra Pradesh
HYDERABAD: Accusing AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu of hatching conspiracies for NIT seats in Warangal, Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari today said the TRS Government would move to court if the AP Government gota share of seats against norms.
Srihari today called on Union Human Resources Development secretary, Satyanarayana Mohanty, at Delhi and appealed to do justice to Telangana students on NIT seats. He complained that Naidu Government has no right to seek a share of the seats after bifurcation, and Article 371 does not attract on seat sharing.
He also complained that Naidu was making deliberate attempts to seek a share in the seats in the central institution against norms.
Talking to media later, Srihari said the Telangana Government would take on Naidu’s conspiracies against the state.
NIT is a central institution, which used to allot 50 percent of the seats to locals, he remarked. However, the Naidu Government was trying to unlawfully seek a share of the seats, he alleged. Srihari also said that since 2007, the seating allocation was on the basis of population, and Telangana was getting its due share of 50 percent seats and the rest as per norms.
Srihari exuded confidence that Naidu’s attempts would not get fructified, as Article 371 does not imply to share the seats. (NSS)
