Hyderabad: Agriculture Minister Pocharam Srinivas Reddy faced a bitter experience as the veterinary students blocked his convoy and locked him in a room demanding to roll back government’s decision of filling veterinary vacancies through Telangana State Public Service Commission.

The Minister who visited Prof. Jayashankar Telangana Agricultural University on Tuesday to participate in the Mana Telangana- Mana Kurralu was stopped by nearly 300 students at the main entrance. Listing their demands, the students shouted slogans against the Minister and the government.

The protesting students demanded the Minister to go in for direct recruitment for filling up vacancies in the veterinary department but not through the public service commission as it would take at least six months to one year for recruitment process to complete.

The Minister told the protesting students that he would discuss with the government and appropriate decision would be taken soon. However, he did not give any assurance to the students. The students went berserk damaging flower pots at main entrance. As the situation went out of control, the police had to use batons to disperse the protesting students.

It may be mentioned here that the government had recently issued a GO according permission to the TSPSC to recruit for vacancies in the veterinary department. Ever since the GO was issued, the students were on the protesting mode demanding to withdraw the GO.

Students lamented that recruitment through public service commission would be time taking process and moreover posts were more in number in contrast to the number of eligible candidates.

“Departmental examination will be easy and can be conducted within less time. We demand the government to recruit through departmental examination,” they said.
