TIRUPATI: The reported decision to cut down the strength from 700 to a mere 200 in the hostel of the TTD-run Sri Padmavati Junior College for girls has come in for a flak from the Chittoor district unit of the Students Federation of India. The district secretary, Sai Lakshmi demanded a corresponding increase in the hostel seats to match the high rate of pass percentage and warned that it would lead an agitation if the authorities failed to respond to the genuine problem. — Special Correspondent
