Mahbubnagar: Expressing deep concern and despair over the State government’s decision to exclude the districts of Wanaparthy and Mahbubnagar from the list of centres for the Eamcet examinations to be held in May this year, the Jayaprakash Narayana Engineering College Management along with the support of principals of various junior colleges and students organisations held a round-table conference on here Friday.

Chairman of JPNCE College K S Ravi Kumar expressed his deep concern over the highhandedness of the government to unilaterally take decision not to sanction the Eamcet centres in Mahbubnagar and Wanaparthy. “I think the Eamcet organising committee should have taken a decision after consulting the stakeholders in the district.

In fact, both Mahbubnagar and Wanaparthy have Eamcet centres for the past 15 years regularly and more than 10,000 students have taken examinations for admission into engineering, agriculture and medicine from the district. By removing the EAMCET centres the students in the district will suffer a lot. They will have to travel all the way to Hyderabad to take the examination and it will create lot of inconvenience to them,” observed Ravi Kumar.

The student organisations termed the abolition of EAMCET centres in Mahbubnagar and Wanaparthy as unfortunate and demanded that the government revisit its decision in the interests of the students of Mahbubnagar district.

While speaking on the occasion, SVIT Engineering college principal Sudhakar said, “For the past 15 years Mahbubnagar had held all the EAMCET examinations without any problem and in a fair manner. Last year 9,021 students from the district had taken EAMCET and this year in 2018 again about 8000 students are expected to take the examination for the engineering, agriculture and medicine streams.

Therefore, it is high time the government took a decision in the interest of the students in the district and took a favourable decision to hold Eamcet entrance examinations in the district.” JNPCE Secretary Venkat Rama Rao, SVITS secretary Sridhar Reddy, leaders of student associations like PDSU, AIYF, TVV, SFI, AISF, TSV and others participated in the round table conference.
