Need to cleanse Engineering Education: Srihari
- Two corporate colleges dictating Inter Board
HYDERABAD: Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari today slammed two corporate colleges for indulging in dictating the government with wrong publicity and for monopolizing engineering education that fetched bad name to the state at national level.
Inaugurating an Education Expo at Nizam College grounds here on Saturday, Srihari, who holds education portfolio, accused two corporate colleges of indulging in wrong publicity, besides dictating terms to Board of Intermediate Education.
The State Government has taken stock of the situation and decided to revamp and strengthen the entire structure of engineering education, he said. Steps will be taken to maintain quality and standards to surpass other colleges, he said.
“Indeed, the two colleges brought bad name to the state, while many colleges have mushroomed for the sake of fees reimbursement, he charged. He also took serious exception to the previous governments for encouraging corruption and misuse of funds through these colleges.
He said the state government would revamp engineer education by cleansing it in the state. “Our engineering education was ridiculed at national level for poor quality, and the TRS Government will wipe out that scar through persistent efforts”, he added. (NSS)
