AJ Radhakrishna Comes In Handy For Cong!

A series of stories being carried by Andhra Jyothy Telugu daily on the plight of students in Osmania University hostels and the negligence of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government has come in handy for the Congress leaders in Telangana to gain some political mileage.

Andhra Jyothy MD V Radhakrishna has been highly critical of the TRS government, particularly Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of late and has not been losing any opportunity to attack the government.

He has been publishing stories on the OU, which was the nerve centre for Telangana movement in the past and the students were strongly behind KCR. The stories on OU hostels has stirred a big controversy in the last couple of days.

Taking advantage of it, Telangana Congress leaders, including former ministers Dr J Geetha Reddy and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, MLAs Padmavathi, G Chinna Reddy and Sampath, Rajya Sabha member MA Khan and others visited the Osmania University hostels on Friday and enquired with the students about their problems.

The Congress leaders made it clear that they would corner the State government in the ensuing legislature session on the Osmania University students’ problems.

Geetha Reddy said she was shocked to see the worse conditions of the hostels. She asked the TRS government to know that ‘Bangaru Telangana’ does not mean simply opening hostel messes.

She said the sanitation condition was hopelessly bad. “I enquired with the sanitation workers about the bad condition of bathrooms and lavatories. They said they are not cleaning bathrooms and lavatories due to non-availability of water”, she said.

She also said the Osmania University students played a key role in Telangana movement. AICC Chief Sonia Gandhi carved out separate Telangana State because of Osmania University students’ sacrifices, she added.
