Minister for Education in Telangana government Jagadeeshwar Reddy on Tuesday criticised the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N.Chandrababu Naidu for 'creating a fuss' over EAMCET counselling.
Speaking to mediapersons at the Telangana Bhavan, he said Chandrababu in fact was responsible for the delay in the EAMCET counselling.
Jagadeeshwar Reddy warned the people of Seemandhra that Chandrababu would dupe them. He said Chandrababu was levelling wild allegations only to divert the attention of the people from the election promises that he had made.
He demanded that Chandrababu clarify his stand on fee reimbursement. "How can Andhra Pradesh Government decide on whether a student is local or non-local in Telangana? Why should it interfere into the affairs of Telangana?" he asked.
"There is no fee reimbursement scheme now. We are implementing Financial Assistance for Students of Telangana (FAST)," he said and added that the Telangana movement had to be launched only to protect the rights of Telangana people. We will protect the rights, lands and the jobs of Telangana people," Jagadeeshwar asserted.
