Hyderabad: On the ‘100 days action’ proposed by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, he said that admissions reforms, implementation of mid-day meal scheme, dropout rate in schools, so and so forth have been included in the list. We would discuss an action plan with the CM before it is implemented.
Giving clarity on 11 new central institutes and universities Srinivas Rao said that a primary decision has been taken during a meeting with Smriti Irani, Union HRD minister and N Chandrababu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. “IIM, IIIT and Tribal University in Vizag, Petroleum University in Rajahmundry, AIIMS, Agricultural University and IISER along the Krishna-Guntur corridor, IIT in Tirupati, central universities and National Institute of Technology would be established. About Rs 7,420 crore have been sanctioned and in the first phase, Rs 120 crore would be released this year,” AP HRD minister informed.
On the admissions, he said that they got the nod to fill seats in IIIT from this academic year only. We would use Andhra University premises for conducting admissions and once the work is finished, it will be shifted to a new campus.
Andhra Pradesh minister for HRD said that in Andhra Pradesh all education boards i.e. primary, secondary, higher and technical education will function under HRD ministry. He said that the new government would provide world class standards and amenities for students in the new state.
‘Fee reimbursement is purely a state prerogative’
Coming down heavily on the Telangana government over the fee reimbursement issue, Andhra Pradesh Human Resource Development Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao, here on Friday, said that State government cannot take a new stand as the presidential order, mulki rules and national policy are in place to decide local and non-local issue. It will be set the precedent in jobs also. “Fee reimbursement is purely a state prerogative. If father’s birth place is considered for nativity, many people who have migrated to Hyderabad would lose nativity in both the states. We may knock the door of High Court if required. Andhra Pradesh government will definitely come to the rescue of Seemandhra students, if Telangana government rules out fee reimbursement for them,” said Srinivas Rao.
