HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K. Rosaiah says he is observing strange trends in the field of education and adds that it is a good commercial activity these days.

Participating in the diamond jubilee celebrations of Badruka Educational Society on Saturday, he said low income groups were drawn to quality education and better health care if they could afford the expenditure. He advised the managements in education and health sectors to serve the needy expecting reasonable profit which they could use for expanding their operations. Mr. Rosaiah said he was baffled by the atmosphere on the campus of a prestigious college here during a recent visit. There were both - talent and money - as only the wealthy parents could afford to educate their children on the campus. In this context, he narrated his own experience when he paid just Rs. 2.75 as fee for his college studies. As a student of ‘Pedda Balasiksha', he was exposed to higher studies only to the extent of mathematics, physics and literature. But, there were several emerging areas of studies now. Badruka Educational Society chairman Hariprasad Badruka spoke.
