TDP plan to fight for T students
- ‘Poru Yatra’ to begin on Dec 9 in Warangal
Hyderabad: After claiming good response from the people in Rytu Poru Yatra, TDP Telangana State party is all set to begin another programme, “Students Poru Yatra” on the problems students facing in the state.
In the proposed 45-day Students Poru Yatra beginning on December 9, the TDP leaders would visit 13 universities across Telangana to understand their problems. The Yatra, to be organized by the Telugu Nadu Students Federation (TNSF) would begin from Ekasila Park in Warangal town and ends on January 26. Police declined to give permission for launching the programme from Kakatiya University.
State party working president A Revanth Reddy, after launching a wall poster of the programme, said the party leaders would highlight the failures of the TRS government, including non-release of funds for fee-imbursement and free education from KG to PG.
Alleging that the TRS government has ignored the education sector, the TDP leader said 3,224 primary schools have been closed down in the name of rationalization and the government failed to set up one ashram for five to six villages. Wrong policy of the state government led to closure of 270 engineering colleges in the last two years and 94 lakh students are facing problems due to non-payment of fee-imbursement. He said private colleges have failed to conduct examinations because the government has not reimbursed students’ fees. The TRS, after coming to power, had promised to provide one lakh government jobs. But now, it failed to keep promises in the name of Telangana State Public Service Commission. -NSS
