Talks fail, colleges to go on bandh from Feb 16

Hyderabad, Feb11 (INN): Managements of over 2,000 private colleges offering Engineering, MCA, MBA among others, have decided to go ahead with their February 16 bandh call after talks between them and the state government on fee reimbursement issue failed on Friday. The Managements of the,000 colleges appealed to the students and parents to cooperate with them in the interests of all to observe the bandh.

Over 100 colleges managements' representatives had earlier met the state government which was represented by a Group of Ministers. It was decided that the government agreed to give Rs 600 crore only in place of Rs 1700 crore as demanded by the colleges. The total arrears were Rs 3400 crore for 2010-2011 academic year. The government was adamant and the Ministers refused to to concede to the managements' demand, leaving them despondent.

Speaking to media persons later at the Secretariat, the college management representatives expressed their dismay and said that they all had come for the meeting with high hopes. 'It is unfortunate,' they said and added that despite extending full cooperation to the Racha Banda in Telangana, the government had not taken a favourable look at their demands.

The Telangana consortium of colleges' representative pointed out that all the colleges in the region had cooperated with the government for conduct of the Racha Banda. The government gave a version to them they could not meet their demand due to certain financial commitments and problems from welfare programmes like Racha Banda and others and so decided to pay Rs 600 crore.

In the absence of financial support as promised, the colleges will face a natural death, said several functionaries from the colleges. They told media men that the government was shirking its responsibility. As far as applications' processing was concerned, it was made clear that there was no hitch.

Health and Medical Education Minister DL Ravindra Reddy, Higher and Technical Education Minister C Damodar Rajanarasimha, Transport Minister Botsa Satyanarayana, Social Welfare Minister Pithani Satyanarayana and BC Welfare Minister B Saraiah, were on the government side that discussed with the managements of the colleges.
