TRS to hold protest on fee structure on Wednesday
Hyderabad Aug 7 : The Telangana Rashtra Samithi will organise protest across the Telangana region on August 8 against the State Government's failure to prescribe the fee structure for admission into the engineering colleges.
Talking to reporter at Telangana Bhavan, TRS MLA K T Rama Rao said that lakh of students were in a dilemma about their future due to government’s attitude. Alleging that the government was trying to dilute the Fee Reimbursement scheme, he said that the decision would hit about 17 lakh students in the State. He slammed the government for going ahead with the counseling for admissions into engineering colleges without announcing the fee structure.
Rama Rao alleged that the then Congress Governent led by YS Rajasekhara Reddy introduced the Fee Reimbursement scheme to gain popular votes. However, the present government was trying to dilute the scheme citing financial problems. However, he said that the dilution of scheme would badly affect the students' community.
Besides holding protests on August 8, the TRS would also picket the District collectorates on August 10th demanding announcement of fee structure, he informed.
