Hyderabad: Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) chairman Prof Kodandaram said that after 1985, the government had stopped investing in education and it resulted in privatisation of the education sector in a big way.
He was speaking at a seminar on “Role of Higher Education, Technical Education and Human Resource Development in Telangana” held at Sundarayya Vignana Kendram on Thursday.
The seminar was jointly organised by Government College Gazetted Telangana Association and Telangana Gazetted Polytechnic College Lecturers Association.
“As many private colleges mushroomed in the State, the government had to allocate lakhs of rupees towards fees reimbursement. If the government had established the colleges, it would not have been necessary to spend money towards the students’ fee in private colleges,” said the TJAC chairman. On the faculty posts, prof Kodandaram said, “Of the 3,300 posts, 1,500 posts are vacant in the degree colleges. After 2016, in Osmania University and Kakitiya University there would not be regular teachers in many departments. Stopping privatisation of education and granting of funds by the government are the only way out for several colleges.
According to TNGO chairman Devi Prasad, the Andhra Pradesh government did not allocate funds for the development of human resources and higher education. “The present education system should be changed by the Telangana government,” said Devi Prasad. Prof G Haragopal also spoke on the occasion.
