Telangana supporters on Thursday prevented four students belonging to Andhra and Rayalaseema regions from attending the counselling for post-graduate admissions conducted by Osmania University at the Nizam College. While three candidates were from Andhra region, one was from the Rayalaseema. All the candidates had come for admissions in MA English, offered by universities in the Telangana region. The students who were turned down include Moid Khan, who had secured the 17th rank in entrance examination for MA English, Kotaiah (rank 63), Rajesh (190) and Srilatha (720). They were from Srikakulam, Krishna and Kurnool districts.
All the four students subsequently lodged a complaint at the Nizam College counselling centre. The four students were identified after the agitators held a weeding out parade at Nizam College grounds on Thursday 19th July. A total of 10,000 students had attended the counselling. The admission process to 47 PG courses offered by universities including Osmania, Palamuru (Mahbub nagar), Telangana (Nizamabad ) and Mahatma Gandhi (Nalgonda) are being conducted at Nizam College. Telangana Rashtra Samithi Vidyarthi Vibhag (TRSVV) members, who staged a protest at Nizam College, said they would not allow students from other regions to take admission in Telangana universities this year. Students from T region are not allowed to take admission in universities of other regions.
Hence, we will not allow non-Telangana students to enter our colleges, said Tirumani Kondal, state secretary, TRSVV. As per the presidential law, 1974 governing admissions to state universities about 85% seats are reserved for local students (those from the respective region), while 15% of the seats are open for competition between local and non-local students. Meanwhile, officials of Osmania University who are in charge of the admissions said a thorough probe would be conducted into the complaint. If found that admissions were disrupted, we will take stringent action against the culprits, said an officer in-charge of admissions. Ironically, the students from other regions were turned back right in front of the admission chamber of PG admissions in Nizam College.
