Warangal: Those who encroached Wakf lands in Hyderabad were promoting Seemandhra agitations said BC Welfare Minister Baswaraju Saraiah. He said that united Andhra Pradesh agitators were not concerned with the employees from Andhra and Rayalaseema regions working in 10 Telangana districts but were only focused on Hyderabad showing the welfare of Seemandhra employees as an excuse. It was because they were being dictated terms by the capitalists who grabbed precious lands in and around Hyderabad, the Minister said speaking to press persons here on Monday.
He said there was no need to the Seemandhra employees to fear about their safety. “There are laws and police to look after them” he added. Referring to the pending demand of conducting the celebrations marking Telangana Liberation Day that falls September 17, by the government he said, a representation in that connection was already given to the government in the past. The Telangana ministers would meet the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and would take the issue to his notice, he said adding the event was being celebrated by the government in Karnataka and Maharshtra states.
He further informed that the Union government has consented to conduct admissions into first year BAMS course at Anantalakshmi Government Ayurvedic College for the year 2013-14. It might be noted that the admissions were stopped at the college for the past two years in view of lack of facilities at the college. Now with the state government putting pressure on the Union government permission to admit 50 students into the first year was granted for the college that has a 60-bedded hospital attached to it. Saraiah also informed that Rs 5 crores were allocated towards the development of roads in Warangal.
