- The district BJP president finds fault with government for raiding private colleges
Speaking at a press meet here on Wednesday, Ashok Reddy found fault with the government for conducting raids on private educational institutions through vigilance and police officials. “It’s totally unwarranted and un-called for,” Ashok Reddy said, urging the government not to meddle with the affairs of the educational institutions.
He said there were government wings like as AICTE, RJD, DEO, MEO etc to carry out inspections and raids on educational institutions. The government can take appropriate action if any institution was found guilty of infringing norms laid down by the authorities concerned.
There was a possibility of students getting disturbed seeing the presence of police in their institutions, he said, demanding the government to stop the raids with immediate effect. Venugopal Reddy criticised the government for its failure to read the famine conditions in the State and not taking precautionary measures to tackle the adverse effects of the drought.
“The government has a task in hand to address drinking water and fodder problem,” he said, finding fault with the ruling government’s inaction though the Central government had released Rs 791 crore for the State. Citing the example of Solapur district administration in Maharashtra, he demanded the government that they give a free hand and adequate funds to the district authorities to deal effectively with the prevailing drought in the state.
The leaders also discussed about the crowd mobilisation for the newly-appointed party’s State president Dr K Laxman’s swearing-in ceremony at Exhibition Grounds in Hyderabad on April 22. Party’s official spokesperson Dasaratham, district general secretary Kumara Swamy, Mulugu constituency convener Chintalapudi Bhaskar Reddy and Parkal constituency in-charge Ramana Reddy were present.
