Come clear on fees reimbursement: YSRCP

Hyderabad, August 29: YSRCP has demanded the State Government to be categorical about fees reimbursement as its GO has been creating confusion and may not stand legal scrutiny which results in loss of an academic year to the students.

“If the State is not willing to continue the fees reimbursement scheme, it can openly tell its stand and need not take recourse in various clauses of the GO. Some student organisations are contemplating to challenge the GO in a court which will further delay the academic year,” party spokesperson, Gattu Ramachandra Rao told reporters here on Wednesday.

The Government has made its intention very clear that it does not want to continue the fees reimbursement scheme started by YSR and has been beating round the bush to evade it by some means or the other, he said.

The clauses of the GO are contradictory and are not in the best interests of the weaker sections aspiring for higher studies, he said adding that the clauses of the GO should be amended to facilitate students to get fees reimbursement.

“If the State is against implementation of the scheme, it can openly declare its stand of shelving the scheme to bring clarity among the students, parents and political parties,” he said.

Expressing the Party’s solidarity with the struggle for Physically Challenged People who are demanding for a sub-plan, he said, “during the plenary itself, our Party has decided that the pension should be increased to Rs 700 or Rs 1,000. TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu during his nine-year rule has increased the pension from Rs 50 to Rs 75 while YSR has increased it from Rs 75 to Rs 500 during his five- year term.”

The Party also paid rich tributes to Gidigu Rama Murthy on his birth anniversary for his contribution to Telugu language.
