Hyderabad: In all probability, the Telangana government will clear the decks for EAMCET counselling in two days. Talking to Young Hans on Thursday, Education Minister G Jagadish Reddy said that a decision would be taken in two days and the same would be communicated to the Andhra Pradesh government.
With Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu blaming the Telangana government for the delay in counselling, Reddy retaliated by questioning, “Where is the government running in Andhra Pradesh?” He refused to divulge information when asked about the exodus of students to other states.
The Telangana government decided to release the EAMCET counselling notification this week and counselling is likely to commence from next week. However, the government needs some time to work on the modalities for fee reimbursement, sources said. According to Higher Education Department officials, the government would announce the modalities of fee reimbursement before seats are allotted to students.
The Supreme Court earlier in its ruling directed the Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments to complete admissions by July end, so that the classes could commence on August 1.
It may be noted that the Telangana government has been trying hard to appeal in the Supreme Court for extension of admission process for two months to take a call on the reimbursement scheme. However, the appeal has not yet fructified.
The government is trying hard to filter students from Andhra region who have been staying in Telangana for fee reimbursement.
It is learnt that the Andhra Pradesh government which had plans for conducting separate counselling dropped it as it would deprive many students of joining top colleges in Hyderabad.
The Higher Education Council also did not approve the plan, as it would be against common admissions that was accorded to the two states in the AP Reorganisation Bill.
