Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council, Mohammed Ali Shabbir, charged the government with violation of human rights as it snapped power supply and water facility to some hostels in Osmania University, and demanded an enquiry into it.
In a letter to the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), he said it is inhuman to cut power and water supply when thousands of students are preparing for competitive exams slated later this month. “It is a matter of utter shame that the Vice Chancellor personally led a posse of policemen to the hostels, disconnecting water and electricity to their rooms,” he said.
He said at least 5,000 to 7,000 students, who will be appearing for Gurukul and teacher eligibility test during this month, are badly affected and reminded that the university authorities had in the past allowed students to stay in the hostels to prepare for competitive examinations without extending mess facility.
“But this year, the university authorities had issued the diktat as a punishment and grudge against the students for raising anti-CM slogans at the university centenary celebrations,” he alleged.
