Hyderabad, Jan 9: YSR Congress has demanded a probe into the growing number of suicides in the private educational institutions in the state and the reasons for the social disorder.
‘The head of the institutions has been very close to Chandrababu Naidu. Though students are committing suicides on a regular basis the reason has not been probed so far,’ party MLA G Srikanth Reddy told reporters here on Monday.
The corporatization of education sector has hit the system very badly and people who are running a chain of institutions have a secured place in the
cabinet and are benamis of Chandrababu Naidu which is why no action has been taken so far on the institutions, he said. There is every effort to promote the institutions and government schools are being closed down to benefit them and the policies are heavily loaded in favour of private institutions, he said.
The parents who committed suicide in Guntur shows the frustration of students and parents who are being harassed by corporate colleges and student organizations should give a serious thinking on the issue and seek explanation from the government, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu claiming that 80 % of the people are happy in the state is nothing but self boasting as not even 1 % of the people are happy. Only those who curry a favour from the government are happy with the contracts and kickbacks, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu has no idea of Nobel Prize going by his remarks at the Science Congress and people who are facing serious charges were given prominence at the grand event, he said. We will work for the betterment of the education system and demand that a probe should be ordered into the growing suicides in the corporate colleges, he said.
