New Delhi: Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya on Tuesday made it clear that the Centre had nothing to do with the controversy over conducting Eamcet in the Telugu-speaking states. He said the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana should talk to each other and sort out the issue amicably.

Telangana has decided to conduct Eamcet for engineering, agriculture and medical courses on May 14 but the Andhra Pradesh government criticized the move citing it is willing to conduct the test for the students of both the states under the AP Reorganization Act 2014. Governor E S L Narasimhan had tried to bring both the governments to evolve a consensus but could not convince them.

With the Centre refusing to intervene, the only option left for the AP government is to approach the High Court. Meanwhile, Telangana CPI secretary Chada Venkat Reddy demanded that the Centre should intervene in the Eamcet row and find an amicable solution. He also asked Telangana Chief Minister KCR to come clear on the fees reimbursement and FAST scheme to relieve the students of chaos and confusion.
