Hyderabad: The Osmania University, which was in serenity all these days, rippled with protest on Monday during the Chalo Assembly called by the Telangana Unemployed Youth Joint Action Committee.
Around 200 students took out a rally towards the Assembly protesting against government decision to regularise the contract workers in the State.
The students who were heading towards NCC gate were contained by the police from moving out of university. This resulted in heavy stone pelting from the students and in the melee, a reporter was hurt.
The agitating students said Telangana State was achieved with sacrifices of the students but not because of contract workers. “No rule of reservation was followed and above all, with political clout contract workers were appointed through back door,” said K Manavath Roy, president of the JAC.
He demanded the government to constitute the members of the Telangana Public Service Commission (TPSC) and release the job notification.
The students felt that they were not against regularisation of class IV employees. However, the jobs which were to be filled through TPSC shouldn't be regularised.
According to Osmania University Circle Inspector, V Ashok Reddy, no lathi-charge and no arrests were made during the protest.
