Student B Eswari poured out her woes to YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy

Guntur: "Anna, the TDP government has not been reimbursing our fees and our college management insists on payment of Rs.10,000 if I have to write the exam," B. Eswari, told YS Jagan. She met him along with other students during the course of the YSRCP chief's Praja Sankalpa Yatra and expressed her anguish at the attitude of the government which withheld reimbursement dues for long spells.Even senior students did not get fee reimbursement, as a result of which college managements said that certificates would be handed over to them only once their dues were cleared. The future of thousands of students was at stake.
