NIZAMABAD: There is no dearth of funds for construction of buildings and other infrastructure on Telangana University campus. It is wrong to say that the varsity has been allocated meagre funds, maintains Minister for Power and Minority Welfare Mohd. Ali Shabbir.

Talking to the mediapersons after visiting the university campus near Dichpally, 18 kms from here on Saturday, he said among the new varsities sanctioned by Dr. Rajasekhara Reddy-led Congress government in the State, the TU alone was allotted 571 acres.

Saying that no other new varsity was given such a vast extent of land, he said within 18 months after the foundation stone was laid, the varsity completed construction of four big buildings.

So far, the varsity was allocated Rs.23 crore and admissions were offered for 18 courses.

Administrative building, hostels for boys and girls, class rooms would get ready for inauguration in another 15 days, he said and added that all required facilities would be provided to the staff working in the varsity. A compound wall was being built around the girls’ hostel and black top roads, mercury lighting and central lighting systems were also coming up on the campus, he said.

Mr. Shabbir Ali said a beautiful garden and a pylon would be constructed on the hillock located in the middle of the campus. Refuting charges that the government was biased towards the TU, he said not even the process of land acquisition was over for the Nannayya University at Rajahmundry, which was set up along with the TU.

“There was no question of regional imbalance or discrimination among regions in respect of allocation of funds in our government”, he said replying a question. People were keenly observing it, he added.
