Addressing the protesters, the SFI State joint secretary, N. Chandra Reddy, the district president, M. Adiseshu, and the secretary, B. Manohar, charged the DEO with remaining unconcerned about the private educational institutions running classes on holidays and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., putting students to heavy strain. Unable to bear the pressure, some students were running away and some others committing suicide, they alleged.
SFI leaders demanded action against Government teachers who were also working in some private institutions and cancellation of recognition of colleges which flouted the guidelines.
Private institutions were fleecing students of thousands of rupees in the name of buildings, sports, library and tuition fees, they alleged and urged the Government to fix the fees for private educational institutions too. They alleged that the DEO was siding with the private managements in the district.
They criticised the Government for promising to fill only 16,000 teacher posts out of the total vacancies of 65,000 in the State. Alleging irregularities in the appointment of 45,000 education volunteers, they urged the DEOs to monitor the selections. SFI functionaries would also picket the Collectorate and MROs' offices on the demands, they said.
District vice-presidents of SFI, T. Sunil and S. Syed, and leaders, Venkatasubbaiah, Narasimha, Sankar, Prasad, Gangadhar, Ramana and others participated.
