Cancel GO 77 to protect students’ rights:Lokesh


Restore fee reimbursement to PG students

Withdraw anti-student policies

Condemns maniac’s attack on Proddatur girl

No safety for women in CM’s own district

AMARAVATI: TDP National General Secretary Nara Lokesh advised the Jaganmohan Reddy Government not to play with the lives and bright future of the students by denying them the benefits of fee reimbursement programme in their educational opportunities.

Mr. Lokesh demanded the Jagan regime to immediately cancel GO 77 which was spoiling chances of thousands of students studying PG courses in private colleges. The ruling YCP was depriving the weaker sections and the backward classes of their opportunities for higher studies.

In a statement here, the TDP MLC condemned the arrests of the leaders of the Telugu Nadu Students Federation (TNSF) to prevent them from exercising their democratic right to protest. The Government was resorting to false arrests and strong arm tactics to break up the students’ protests.

Mr. Nara Lokesh demanded the ruling YCP to extend fee reimbursement to all the deserving PG students in private colleges with immediate effect. A state-wide agitation would be launched if the anti-student policies and decisions were not taken back by the Government. The young generations were unhappy with the adamant attitude of the Jagan regime and they would teach a strong lesson to the YCP at the earliest opportunity.

Mr. Lokesh expressed serious concern that there was no safety to the women in the Chief Minister’s own district. The YCP leaders were only playing dramas in the name of the Disha Act but not a single woman victim got justice in the past one and half years. Everyday, atrocities were being committed on innocent women in some corner of the State or other. The attack by maniac Sunil in the name of love in Proddatur was highly condemnable.

Mr. Nara Lokesh condemned the brutal knife attack on innocent girl Lavanya in Kadapa district just because she refused to accept the love proposal. Such atrocities were on the rise in AP because of the negligent attitude of the YCP Government. In their madness for political vengeance, the YCP regime has caused total deterioration of the law and order. Safety of women and girl students was thrown to the winds.

The former Minister urged the Government to ensure the best medical care to the girl who suffered injuries in the maniac’s attack. Deterrent punishment should be given to those who were resorting to such gruesome atrocities.
