    RTI query reveals 200 PG medical seats still vacant

    Vijayawada
    : After an RTI query revealed that 200 convener quota PG medical seats remained vacant in the counselling held last month to fill 1,000 convener quota seats in both government and private colleges of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Dr NTR Health Science University officials claim that the university has no intention to benefit private colleges by selling the seats in the management and NRI quotas.

    As the medicos alleged that the university deliberately kept 200 seats vacant, G. Krishna Murthy, academic director R&D, told DC that vacant seats had been allotted to students who vacated them after choosing other colleges.

    “Students enrol for counselling to block the seats and leave them when they get a seat in other big colleges. That’s why 200 seats are still vacant,” he said. However, medicos disagreed and questioned how 200 seats could remain vacant when the courses are in great demand.

    While there are speculations that the 200 seats will be filled through management category, university officials said the seats will not be filled. If anybody is caught admitting students, they will be prosecuted and the college will be blacklisted, said registrar S. Babulal. University officials added, “If we get court orders to fill the vacant 200 PG seats, we are ready to fill those seats by arranging counselling.”

    Acharya Nagarjuna University to reopen tomorrow

    GUNTUR:
    Classes at the Acharya Nagarjuna University would resume from August 5 and the hostel would reopen on Tuesday for those who come from long distances. It may be recalled that the varsity was closed two weeks ago in the name of restoring normalcy in wake of protests over the alleged suicide of B. Arch student M. Rishiteswari.

    Meanwhile, the fact finding committee appointed by state government under chairmanship of retired IAS officer Balasubrahmanyam will interact with students of ANU. Though the committee was appointed for a period of five days, its duration has been extended since the varsity had announced holidays.

    The committee has interacted with the parents of Rishiteswari, varsity V-C and other officials, faculty members, hostel wardens, friends of Rishiteswari and police personnel investigating the case. Now, they will interact with other students of the varsity to get more details about ragging, political affiliations of students and other issues.

    Meanwhile, ANU V-C K.S.R. Sambasiva Rao said that the varsity won't allow anyone other than the students and staff inside the campus. He informed that every student and staff of the university, including him, would get bio-metric identity card within a week and they should carry it while entering the campus. CCTVs have also been installed on the campus at every entry gate, hostel and college buildings and the campus is being monitored round-the-clock, he added.

    Lokesh mourns death on Facebook:

    A loss of life is unfortunate, especially when it is a young girl who has left her parents, her home in pursuit of education, read the Facebook status of Nara Lokesh, coordinator of TD Cadre Welfare Fund and son of Chief Minister N.Chandrababu Naidu.

    Two weeks after the alleged suicide incident, Mr. Lokesh reacted on his Facebook page regarding the alleged ragging and suicide of Rishiteswari, a B.Arch first year student at ANU. Mr Lokesh’s status said that “destroying her dreams in a moment of weakness by committing suicide. Whatever led to her taking the drastic step is being speedily probed by the AP Government and justice will be served without delay.”

    Through his Facebook posts Mr Lokesh informed that TD chief Mr Naidu has consoled the parents and promised to pay an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh along with offering a plot in Rajahmundry.

    Cambridge University campus in Amaravati
    Andhra Pradesh is all set to have a campus of the Cambridge University in its new capital Amaravati.

    According to Union Minister of State for Science and Technology Y. Satyanarayana (Sujana) Chowdary, the university has agreed to start a not for profit organisation to begin with and the proceeds of this organisation would be utilised in the fields of education and research. The university would subsequently set up its campus in the new capital in the due course.

    The development follows Mr. Chowdary’s invite to the university authorities to partner with Andhra Pradesh that has put education on the forefront. The university authorities confirmed their interest in starting operations from Andhra Pradesh during their recent visit to New Delhi.

    The State government has, accordingly, decided to constitute a three-member committee to hold negotiations with the Cambridge University. The Minister said a delegation of the university was expected to visit the State soon.
