HYDERABAD: Telangana Congress Chief Revanth Reddy has sought to know why the government is not paying attention to the worried students of IIIT Basara, whose agitation entered the sixth day.
In an open letter addressed to the Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy said that students were living like prisoners since a week, worrying about the problems at IIIT Basara, which was set up to provide technical education to rural students. The protesting students were not being given a chance of meeting their families. Meanwhile, instead of paying heed to the issues, the students are deprived of basic facilities like drinking water and electricity. All these actions would amount to under violation of human rights.
He alleged that despite students going through this misery with their protest, Education Minister mocked the protest by calling it "silly".
Revanth also slammed KTR saying, "His son KTR failed to keep his promise of resolving all the problems of the students which was stated on his tweet."
He also said that government cheated people with false job promises. It's been eight years and no educational institution had been established. "How are you going to provide good jobs if there is no development in educational institutions," he asked. He also mentioned the demands of the students.
Revanth extended support to the students and asserted that if the demands were not met, the Congress would join the students.
