Telangana University Vice Chancellor Akbar Ali Khan has asked students to focus on their core textbooks and not depend on guide books. He also regretted the low percentage of GDP being spent by the government on education.
Prof. Khan was addressing a two-day ‘Hyderabad Students Festival’, being organised by the Students Islamic Organisation here on Saturday.
Retired IAS officer K. R. Venugopal, who inaugurated the festival, interacted with the students, and asked them to be morally and ethically stronger.
A large number of students from different campuses turned up at the festival, being held at the Exhibition Grounds in Nampally.
The festival provides a platform to students to exhibit their talents, while focusing on the real essence of education.
The programme aims to inculcate social sensitivity among students, promote healthy and ethical competitive spirit, identify talent and motivate students towards research-oriented studies.
