The State Education Minister P. said that steps should be taken to prevent future problems in Basara Triple IT, which was set up with the determination to provide international level technical education to rural students. Sabita Indra Reddy ordered the in-charge vice chancellor. On Monday, Basara reviewed Triple IT in his office. The students were advised to solve the problems that had been promised in the past. The minister said that the necessary funds have already been sanctioned for this. In terms of teaching, food and accommodation, measures should be taken in accordance with the aspirations of the students so that no problems arise in the future. The Minister assured that the Government will extend full cooperation to the measures taken by the authorities for the welfare of the students.
The problems in Basara Triple IT College are not all. NTV brought to light the problems there. Last month, students started a large-scale agitation for about a week to solve these problems. Various parties supported the students’ agitation. The government promised to resolve the issues by holding discussions with the students. Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy herself assured the students that the students’ agitation stopped.
After all this, Basara IIIT again came into the news. This time, as the students fell ill after eating the contaminated food, there was concern about what was happening there. After this, the government appointed an in-charge VC in place of the regular VC. The student body is divided on this. Students protested. The students expressed anger that what they wanted was not for an in-charge VC but for a regular PC. The main demands like uniforms, cancellation of mess contract, laptops and replacement of chancellors have not been resolved and they have been given a deadline of 24th of this month for their resolution. The students have warned that if their demands are not resolved, there will be a large-scale agitation from 25th.
Meanwhile, YSRTP leaders staged a dharna in front of Triple IT in Basara, Nirmal district. The security personnel stopped the leaders at the main gate while they were going to visit the food poisoned students..Therefore they staged a sit-in in front of the gate and raised slogans against the government. The police arrested the student union leaders. The situation has led to tension in this process.
