The Government of Telangana is contemplating on transforming educational institutions on par with corporate ones in order to provide quality education and further develop human resource, Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Education, Kadiyam Srihari was quoted as saying by The Hindu report.
Teacher Training Center
Srihari , along with Minister for Finance and Civil Supplies, Eatala Rajender laid foundation stone for the construction of Teacher Training Centre at a cost of ₹20 lakh at Peddapalli besides inaugurating the newly-constructed Government Junior College building at Julapalli mandal recently.
Speaking on the occasion, Srihari said earlier governments had sanctioned government degree, junior and DEd colleges, but failed to construct the buildings. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi party, after coming to power, allocated ₹313 crore for the construction of 404 junior college buildings and has completed 396 buildings so far. He said the government streamlined engineering colleges with an aim to provide quality education by reducing over one lakh seats, the report pointed out.
To ensure higher education for girl students, the government sanctioned 53 residential degree colleges in the State. Stating that they were taking all measures to fill up vacant posts, he said the government increased the honorarium for contract lecturers from ₹18,000 per month to ₹36,000 a month, the report said.
On the occasion, the Deputy Chief Minister asked Peddapalli legislator D. Manohar Reddy to release 1 crore from his constituency development fund for taking up minor repairs and other work in government schools and junior colleges.
Listing out the welfare schemes implemented by the government for all sections, Eatala said the erstwhile Karimnagar district would be the first beneficiary of Kaleshwarm lift irrigation project that was all set for trial run in July this year.
Meanwhile, Manohar Reddy urged the Telangana Government to sanction a government residential degree college for women in Peddapalli town. Legislative Council Chief Whip P. Sudhakar Reddy, TSRTC Chairman S. Satyanarayana, Peddapalli MP Balka Suman, MLCs Naradasu Laxman Rao and T. Bhanu Prasad, IDC Chairman E. Shankar Reddy, Collector A.
