Hyderabad, Feb.18 (NSS):However, the Jagan group leader, Mr Ambati Rambabu, has termed the government’s announcement on fees reimbursement as a mere eye wash. He has alleged that the government has brought a split among the college managements using the divide and rule policy and got them agree to its plan.
Alleging that the government was bent on withdrawing the scheme, Mr Ambati claimed that the government has released at least Rs 1,000 crores because of the proposed hunger strike of Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy. Stating that the agitation for fees reimbursement would continue, he said the government could not hoodwink the student community with its tricks.
Meanwhile, Mr Jagan started his week-long hunger strike at Indidra Park this morning. There was a large gathering at the venue named “Varalakshmi Pranganam” after the engineering student who had committed suicide as she was unable to bear the harassment of the college management for fees payment.
Several student organizations extended support to Mr Jagan’s hunger strike. Several Congress MLAs, including Ms Jayasudha, Mr Balineni Srinivasa Reddy, Mr Pilli Subhashchandra Bose, Mr Amaranatha Reddy, Mr Srinivasulu, Mr Srikanta Reddy, and Kapu Ramachandra Rao, were present at the hunger strike venue.
