Hyderabad, Nov 11- Amid the ongoing controversy over pending bills, Telangana Education Minister P. Sabita Indra Reddy on Thursday met Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan to clear her doubts on the Common Recruitment Board Bill. The minister, accompanied by senior officials, went to the Raj Bhavan to give an explanation sought by the governor. The governor is understood to have told ministers and officials that a general recruitment board could delay appointments in universities. She said that her only concern is to avoid any legal hurdle. Sundararajan also wanted to know whether the board would be as per the University Grants Commission (UGC) norms. He also raised the issues related to the implementation of the reservation policy.
The Minister assured the Governor that all the rules would be followed and the reservation system would be strictly implemented. The Governor had summoned the Education Minister to clarify whether the Bill is valid for teaching faculty of universities. The education minister’s visit came a day after the governor addressed a press conference to refute allegations by the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) that his office was sitting on certain bills by the state government for his assent. She said she is taking time to assess and analyze the bills before giving her assent.
