Members from Telangana Parents Association, Telangana Intermediate Protection Samiti, Government Intermediate Lecturers Association and other similar organisations, will submit a petition to the education minister, higher education secretary and Inter Board secretary on Monday. They warned of protest in front of the Inter Board if the government failed to withdraw the move.
TPA president N. Narayana said, “It was a government decision to promote all Intermediate first year students. Now when the students are attending second year physical classes, how can they concentrate on the first year syllabus? If held, the exams will be taken as an opportunity by corporate colleges to fleece in the name of examination fee.”
