More than 2 lakh students are facing trouble with the EAMCET counselling, as they are waiting to get admission to professional courses.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has sought Governor E S L Narasimhan's intervention to prevail upon the Telangana Government to immediately commence the counselling process for admission into professional courses for the 2014-15 academic year.
Naidu, along with Human Resources Development Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, met the Governor at Raj Bhavan yesterday and brought to his notice the stalemate in the admission process into engineering and other professional courses.
The fate of over two lakh students are hanging in balance because of the stalemate, Naidu said after the meeting, adding that most of them (from AP and Telangana) have started migrating to colleges in other states.
The CM pointed out that a Supreme Court verdict has mandated that the admission process be completed by July 31, so as to commence the classes from August.
Naidu reportedly informed the Governor that he had written a letter to his Telangana counterpart, K Chandrasekhar Rao, four days ago, stating his Government was ready to start the counselling process.
"The admission process into professional courses is yet to take place in both the successor states and more than two lakh students are anxiously waiting for counselling. "Students of both the states have started migrating to colleges in other states because of the delay in counselling here, causing financial and psychological burden to parents. It is also adversely affecting the colleges in the two states," Naidu pointed out in his letter to Rao.
