Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national chairman N. Chandrababu Naidu accused the YSRCP government of “recklessly” canceling aid to state educational institutions, dealing a “death blow” in the future of students from disadvantaged financial backgrounds.
In a statement Tuesday, Naidu said the YSRCP government adopted an “anti-education” policy that “pulled students out of their schools and forced them to take to the streets.”
âAt the same time, the government is harassing institutions that do not hand over their assets and property,â he said.
The president of the TDP demanded that the government withdraw the GO 42 without creating a new crisis. âThe ruling party does not have the right to destroy the old subsidized institutions and the future of the students who study there. The merger of the institutions helped with public schools and colleges is unnecessary and reprehensible, âhe declared.
Mr Naidu pointed out that the academic year had already been delayed by more than two months due to the coronavirus pandemic. âAt this crucial time, the government should ensure the smooth pursuit of education without hindrance. The merging of institutions causes unbearable stress for students and their parents, âhe said.
