WEEK 20 DAY 1
Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, SR Nagar, Hyderabad, Oct. 15: The Student Wing of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti attacked the IIT Academy today, forcing it to shut shop at around 12:30 PM.
A little over noon, the activists stormed the college and demanded that all students be sent home. They shouted slogans and ordered students to leave. Our correspondent reports that they shouted in Telugu, "unless the Principal touches KCR's [K Chandrashekhar Rao, TRS Chief] feet, the college would remain closed." They asked students not to attend any more classes during the festival season.
Some speculate that their prime aim was to give the students a holiday (holidays are officially supposed to last throughout this week) and also to create a final bang before they "suddenly disappear," according to Mrs. Latika, English HOD.
First year students wrote an EAMCET Exam this year. The Instant Poll revealed that the paper was easy. Mr. Varaprasad confirmed that this paper could be taken as a standard for EAMCET.
A big question mark now hangs over the future of tomorrow's AIEEE Exam. Mrs. Jhansi has said that she can hold the exam at any time of the day, but whether TRS and other organizations will let her do so is left to be seen. (OTFS)
