IIIT Basara parents' committee to file petition in High Court seeking rectification of administration
"A lot of students have suffered food poisoning. We now plan to file a petition in the High Court seeking rectification of the administration of IIIT Basara," one of the parents said
Police on Sunday, July 31, detained about 30 parents of IIIT Basara students who were staging a protest in front of Education Minister Sabitha Indira Reddy's residence at Srinagar Colony in Hyderabad. The parents complained that the demands of their children had not been fulfilled yet, despite the government promising to do so.
"A group of 30 members of the Parents Association went to the Minister's residence to represent the issues of the students. However, when stopped by the police, we started a protest on the road itself," said A Rajeshwari, President of IIIT Basara Parents Committee, as stated in a report by The New Indian Express.
The parents were shifted to Jubilee Hills Police Station.
Engineering second and third-year students in IIIT Basara are on hunger strike since Saturday, July 30, evening demanding the mess contractors be changed. The varsity Director issued a notice on Sunday in this regard.
Parents of these students organised a meeting on Sunday morning where they decided to meet the Minister.
"A lot of students have suffered food poisoning. We now plan to file a petition in the High Court seeking rectification of administration of IIIT Basara," Rajeshwari said.
