As the Telangana state government continues to delay the reopening of hostels, students from outside the towns and villages where their colleges are located are in a difficult situation.
Many students who studied at colleges in Adilabad district said they could not afford the transportation costs.
U Mahesh, a graduate student, said: âStudents who have been admitted to the district headquarters with the hostel facilities are facing problems because it has not reopened. I wanted to stay with my friend in his room but the owner did not give permission to more than three students. I am not able to bear the cost of staying in the hotels as well as paying for the food. “
It should be noted that the second semester exams for undergraduates will start from October 8, and it would not be possible for students to spend money out of their pocket to stay off campus for a week. . Student union leader B Rahul said: âWhile students manage to stay with their friends, what about female students who have to come and sit for their exams. For example, students coming from Nirmal district have to travel 100 kilometers every day if they have to take their semester exams. Apart from that, paramedical classes and polytechnic classes have started to operate and almost 80 percent of students depend on hostels. “
The state government has reopened all schools, colleges, paramedical colleges and polytechnics, but has not given orders to reopen the hostels.
