BJP city unit on Monday organised a dharna at the Collector’s Office demanding that fee reimbursement be de-linked with Aadhaar enrolment and sufficient funds be earmarked for reimbursement.

With colleges pressing for payment and stating that they would not be allowed to take the examination, the future of students was jeopardised, party leaders said.

Former MLA K. Haribabu, party city unit president P.V. Narayana Rao, Bandaru Ranga Mohana Rao, M. Nagendra and J.Pridhviraj were among those who led the dharna.

The party demanded that a separate directorate be formed for fee reimbursement and admission should be given only after all the certificates were thoroughly examined and for renewal the results from the respective universities should be taken into account.
