Warangal: The tri-cities of the Warangal-Hanamkonda-Kazipet have proved their position as the academic hub in Telangana with the JEE-2013 passing off without a glitch on Sunday. The students and their parents who have visited Warangal for the examination have showered praises on the hospitality extended by both the police and non-government agencies this time. It might be noted that the students and parents who visited Warangal town last year for the test had very bad experience with all hotels and lodgings booked months before the test. They were forced to sleep on pavements and in parks and even had difficulty in reaching their examination centres in view of the traffic jams that choked the roads. This time efforts of urban police, social organizations and individuals have yielded good results in addressig such shortcomings. The initiative of offering free accommodation to the JEE aspirants taking test here was first taken by Sri Shiridi Sai Devasthanam which offered to accommodate 300 persons. That was followed by a series of offers by persons and organizations to give accommodation and food. Some schools have run free bus services to transport the students to their test centres. The devasthanam trust chairman Matukumalli Haragopal and the trust member Nimmala Srinivas said 'We are very happy that we could motivate others, besides offering help to the students'. Urban superintendent of police A Venkateswar Rao has also took the initiative of motivating the individuals and non-government organizations such as Lions Club and others who set up 16 helpline centres across the town. "The task was immense but we were able to achieve it with the active support of our personnel, social organizations and individuals" he said. Students Islamic Organisation, Nayini Rajender Reddy Foundation, TRS Students wing, Warangal District Private Schools Association, Vasavi Seva Samithi, and others have also made their contribution. "The hospitality offered and setting up of helpline centres for guiding students are really remarkable, we haven't expected this kind of arrangements" said Ch Sumanth who arrived here to take the test. "At first we were tense but after coming here we were relieved a lot as we could find accommodation and even transportation to reach the centre in time" added a parent Nagaraju of Nabipet in Nizamabad.
