Row over IIT

The announcement of IIT has brought with it more controversy than cheer. When the Government announced its location in Medak district and not Basar as was being projected earlier, there was widespread condemnation from academics, political parties and leaders particularly from Adilabad district.

The prestige attached to it and the growth engine that comes with the institute has literally divided the politicians of Medak and Adilabad districts who don't want to miss the opportunity to hog limelight. But now the pressure is immense on leaders of all political parties from both the districts not to let go the opportunity. Who wins the race is a big question but it is going to be litmus for the Government, given the sensitivity of the issue.
