Hyderabad, March 26 (IANS) Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday announced that he will take up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi the demand for recall of University of Hyderabad Vice Chancellor P. Appa Rao.
He announced this in assembly while replying to debate on the unrest in the central university in the wake of Appa Rao resuming charge as the vice chancellor.
KCR, as the leader is popularly known, said he would take up the issue with the prime minister in two to three days and expressed the hope that the issue will be sorted out.
He was responding to the demand by Majlis-e-Ittehadul MuslimeenA (MIM) and other parties that the house pass a resolution to urge the central government to recall Appa Rao as VC as his return to the university has created fresh unrest.
Stating that UoH is a central institution institution and does not fall under the purview of the state government, he rejected the demand for passing a resolution.
The chief minister also announced that a probe by a senior official will be conducted into the incidents that occurred on the campus on March 22.
“If any atrocities were found to be committed by police, appropriate will be taken,” he said.
Alleging that police committed atrocities on students, the opposition Congress and MIM wanted a thorough probe.
