TRS chief says he

is against involving students in agitations

HYDERABAD: Twelve thousand students will attend training classes to gain knowledge on various issues relating to Telangana at the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) headquarters here from August 11. They are members of the Telagana Vidyarti Vibhag committees constituted in 90 per cent of colleges in the region, according TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao.

He told reporters here on Tuesday that professors from the Kakatiya and Osmania Universities would impart training to each batch of 500 students from four districts and as many Assembly constituencies.

To begin with, the student union members from Gadwal (Mahabubnagar), Kamalapur (Karimnagar ) and Suryapet (Nalgonda) constituencies would comprise the inaugural batch.

Mr. Rao said girl students were also seeking to form separate committees in their colleges as also in co-educational institutions.

The TRS chief said he was against involving students in the agitation for separate Telangana, as was done in 1969.
