Hyderabad, Sep 1 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Higher Education Minister R Chenga Reddy today said there was no proposal to fill up vacant posts and to regularise the services of unaided lecturers in the aided degree colleges.
Replying to a question by K S Lakshmana Rao and D Nagewar from the Graduates' constituency during Question Hour in the Council, he said there were 2,972 vacant posts in aided degree colleges in the state.
The members alleged that the government was neglecting the aided degree colleges by not filling up vacant posts and the students, mostly from backward classes and poor background, were studying in the colleges without subject teachers like mathematics and science.
The minister said at present, there were 226 aided degree colleges in the state as against 178 colleges during the TDP regime.
Mohan Reddy from the Teachers constituency demanded the government fill up the posts which fell vacant due to retirement of teachers.
