July 24, 2014 - Hyderabad
Andhra Pradesh government is planning to go ahead with medical counselling first and notification will be issued shortly.
Minister for Social Welfare R Kishore Babu said on Thursday that the government would send their proposal on medical counselling to the Telangana government. He said that ‘we will seek their response. If they do not accept or respond, we will be moving to court as any more delay would be detrimental to the interests of the students of both the States. We are confident that the 1956 cut-off date for nativity proposed by Telangana government would not be legally valid as it is against the Constitution’, he said.
It may be recalled a delegation from Andhra Pradesh has represented the Union Government over the impasse in EAMCET counselling on nativity issue.
The Social Welfare Minister said that K Chandrasekhara Rao is against in violation of the Constitution and the AP State Reorganization Act. He added that the Presidential order also defined the local candidate for admission in higher education institutions as those who studied for four consecutive years in a local area prior to the qualifying examination. He said that they have also taken to the notice of the Union Home Minister that the Governor is not using his special powers under Sec.8 of the AP State Reorganization Act.
