government from Post Graduation II year. He also stated that Universities are most neglected by the Telangana Government. The Chief Minister insted of concentrating on providing New Technology in the Education System, Buildings, modern Infrastructure etc., he is interested in construction of new Secretariat Building, Chief Minister’s New Campus ignoring the students welfare and organising the grand functions of the 100 years of Osmania University which is not required by the students.
