Mareppa visits KVR College; promises additional hostel

KURNOOL: Minister for Marketing M. Mareppa visited K.V.R. College and hostel here on Tuesday.

The students drew the attention of the Minister to the appalling conditions in the hostel saying that 30 students were squeezed into one room due to lack of accommodation.

The Minister promised to take up the matter with authorities at the district level and with the Higher Education Department for construction of an additional hostel on the campus. He said it would not be a problem as land was available. The Minister went round the college interacting with the students and teachers and examined their books.

Visits kitchen

Later, the Minister visited the kitchen and dining hall. He expressed happiness over the cleanliness maintained in the kitchen, but found the dining hall highly congested.

Mr. Mareppa tasted the food and curries served to the students. He promised a sumptuous dinner to all students soon at his expense. He instructed the officials to renovate the swimming pool on the campus, which was abandoned saying swimming was a good exercise for the students.
