Hyderabad, September 21: Students belonging to Telugunadu Student Federation (TNSF) today went on a begging spree protesting against the state government’s inordinate delay in reimbursing fee for BC students.
Students sought alms at New MLA quarters and the Secretariat.
Speaking on the occasion,Telugu Yuvatha and TNSF state presidents Beeda Ravi Chandra Yadav and N Narsi Reddy said that TNSF students went on ‘Bhikshatana’ across the state today.
They said that due to the lopsided policies of the government, the future of lakhs of students was hanging in balance.
He alleged that the government compensated Congress MLA TG Venkatesh, who lost his land in ORR by giving `3 crore worth land at Shamshabad. But, the government did not show the same sympathy towards lakhs of students who were left in the lurch without fee reimbursement and non-payment of scholarship amounts, he said.
They said that though `3,792.92 crore was required for fee reimbursement, the state government provided a budgetary allocation of only `2,287.27 crore.
