G.H, Tippareddy, MLC, has appealed to the State government to provide basic facilities in pre-university colleges in rural areas.

Inaugurating a science exhibition for high school students organised at the Maharani Pre-University College here on Tuesday, Mr. Tippareddy said that decades ago, there were only arts and commerce colleges in villages. Now the things had changed gradually, and science colleges were also coming up in rural areas. “In order to help students in villages learn better, the State government should ensure that all facilities, including full-fledged laboratories, are provided to these colleges,” he said.

On many occasions, students of science colleges had launched protests and staged dharna to draw the attention of the government to recruit teaching and non-teaching staff to their colleges and provide basic facilities. The government should consider their genuine demands and fulfil them at the earliest, he said. He advised people in rural areas to come out of superstition, untouchability and caste system and get prepared to face the challenges of the present-day competitive world. “In modern days, only talented students get better opportunities, without any influence or caste certificate. Parents should make their children develop positive approach and creativity in order to achieve expected goals in life,” he said.

Zilla panchayat chief executive officer K.M. Narayanswamy said that learning was a continuous process and students had the urge to learn more. “Since nature is a treasure of knowledge, one can acquire more knowledge through commitment and dedication,” he said.

S..K. Basavarajan, MLA; Sunita Mallikarjun, president of the City Municipal Council; and Dyamanna, vice-president of the zilla panchayat, were present.
