Encroachments are rampant across State with the involvement of local politicians
Government junior colleges in Telangana are losing their precious resource – land, and also their very existence with landsharks and politicians eyeing them in the name of litigation and development respectively. The latest that has come under attack is the Government Junior College (GJC) Nagarkurnool where the compound wall was demolished by the municipal officials, apparently under direction from the local politicians to accommodate street-vendors in the altered boundaries. This was done without intimating the college administration or the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE), claim the teachers and students opposing the move. This is the not the first incident. Similar attempts were made recently in a government junior college in Yadagirigutta of Yadadri district. Some dwellings have come up within the college boundaries with an apparent motive to gradually occupy the land. However, when the student organisations protested, officials demolished the constructions on the directions of Yadadri Collector Anita Ramachandran.
