More students from Maharashtra seek admission to Telangana schools.


Lack of basic amenities, good diet, and only Marathi medium are forcing many students living across the river Penganga river to cross over to Adilabad to seek admission to Telangana schools.

They said many government schools are in a dilapidated condition with tin or asbestos roofs, the only diet is daily kichidi, and lack of English medium. But whereas in Telangana, the government has good cement concrete buildings with better facilities, offering a daily diet of daal, curry, and egg. Moreover, the Telangana government is offering English medium which is most sought after now to secure even a small job.

As the bridge was constructed across Maharashtra and Adilabad over the Penganga river, now they find it easy to cross over for their studies and daily, mostly tribals living on the other side of the river in Maharashtra.

One Mamidvar Prithvi of Sunna village of Kelapur taluk in Maharashtra showered praises on Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. He said the CM KCR was doing work. He had completed his degree and is now into farming for lack of a proper job. “Our schools are in very bad shape here. Now English medium is compulsory in this competitive age which is not being offered here. But Telangana government has introduced it that is the most attractive point for our children to go to Adilabad. I feel fortunate had I been born in Telangana,” he said.

A girl named Baahune Pranaya studying ninth class in Pipparwada school said she belonged to Pippalkoti in Maharashtra where they only teach in Marathi medium. She said she joined the eighth class in Adilabad and TSRTC offered her a free bus pass which was a blessing to her. “The mid-day meal is very good here Telangana schools and facilities are good as well,” she pointed.
