Hanamkonda: BJP national executive member Perala Sekhar Rao has strongly objected the State government’s proposal to allocate 1,000 acres land to Reliance Group to set up a university in Hyderabad.

While demanding the government immediate withdrawal of the proposal to allocate such a vast land to Reliance, the BJP leader posed “Who have authorised you to allocate public property to benefit a private company?”

It might be noted that during a visit to Mumbai in the first quarter of this year, Municipal Administration and IT Minister K T Rama Rao invited Reliance Group head Mukesh Ambani to set up an educational institute in the city while assuring to allot the land they required.

Speaking to presspersons in Hanamkonda on Friday, he warned that BJP would launch serious agitations against proposed allocation of land as the government has no right to misuse public assets. The company, if establishes university, would collect huge amounts of fees and it could not be useful to common public.

However, Shekar Rao suggested that instead of allotting large extent of land to a single entity, the government, if really intends to develop education sector, could provide two to three acres of land to nearly 500 persons.

Managements of several private educational institutions in the State are ready to establish schools and colleges if the government provides land on subsidised rates. It could benefit larger section of the society, he added.

TRS government diverting centralfunds meant for scholarshipsDue to the government’s failure to implement fee reimbursement effectively, large numbers of private colleges went bankrupt. Many institutions were being closing down as the managements could not face financial burden.

Though the Centre was releasing funds towards scholarships for SC/ST/BC and minority scholarships, the TRS government was diverting them. Similarly Rs 800 crore drought relief funds were diverted. Major part of Rs 1,000 crore funds released under 14th Finance Commission was being misused by TRS sarpanches, Shekar Rao alleged.

‘Where all these were going? An enquiry should be conducted into this. The government should release a white paper on spending of nearly one lakh crore central funds released to the state so far,’ he demanded.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was lacking priority in the implementation of welfare programmes. The party MLAs, MPs and even officials were not caring to implement 70 to 80 key central schemes. The BJP would launch series of agitations against the state government in this connection, he warned.Party leaders Rau Padma, E Ashok Reddy and others were present.
