While the APSCHE has released the notification for Engineering counselling, Telangana Education Minister Jagadish Reddy has appealed to the Telangana students not to take part in the counselling and wait till the government makes an official announcement. Jagadish Reddy defended his government's stand on fees reimbursement to students and also claimed that in the past counselling was held in October month. The APSCHE has asserted that it would hold counselling on August 7th at any cost.
On the other hand, Telangana government has appointed a five member committee to sketch the guidelines for FAST scheme [Financial Assistance to Students of Telangana]. The government is firm on the 1956 cut off, for the fee reimbursement. Nativity of students, their parents and grandparents will be taken care by Revenue department. In reputed institutes, 31 percent students belong to Telangana region and the government wants to increase this quota and irrespective of caste, government wants to provide FAST scheme to students who are financially weak.
Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh government is looking at the Supreme Court's decision on August 4th. It is yet to file a counter against the T-government's decision of postponing the counselling for two more months. Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao has been making statements everyday in regards with this case.
APSCHE being firm, Telangana government not compromising, Andhra government alert, can be cleared with Supreme Court judgment. All eyes are on August 4th.
