Hyderabad: Congress MLA A. Sampath Kumar on Friday challenged TRS Ministers to visit the Osmania University without any security.
Speaking to media persons at Assembly Media Point, Sampath Kumar accused the TRS of exploiting the students. He said TRS had promised 2 lakh jobs if it comes to power in the new State of Telangana. While addressing the first budget session, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had promised to fill 1.07 lakh vacancies in various departments of the State Government. However, this year Finance Minister claimed that there were only 56,000 vacancies and process has been initiated to fill 18,000 posts. Contrary to his Eatala’s claims, Telangana Public Service Commission chairman Ghanta Chakrapani said that recruitment was being done only on 11,000 posts.
The Congress MLA said KCR, Eatala and Chakrapani were misleading the jobless youth by giving contradictory statements. He said that the students of Osmania University and other institutions have actively participated in the Statehood movement. It was due to the sacrifices and struggle of those students that Telangana became a reality. However, the TRS Government has exploited their sentiments to the extent that the entire student community is quite angry with the ruling party. Therefore, he said no minister had courage to visit Osmania University without security fearing ‘gherao’ by students. (INN)
