Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Wednesday asserted that leaders should not give false hope to students about government jobs as there are very few in the state.
"We have to guide students properly. Leaders shouldn't give false hope about government jobs. In our state, there are only three lakh government employees, eight lakh IT employees. We can't give government jobs to everyone," Rao said.
He further said that government can easily afford two and a half thousand crore rupee reimbursement and urged them not to make an issue out of it.
"Our government has already paid Rs. 4688.82 crore since we came into government. We won't create problem to students at any cost," he said.
He said that the state has the highest residential schools for Schedule Caste and minority students.
"20 lakh we are giving to each student for them to study abroad which has never been done by any government," he said.
"I spoke to engineering college students. They expressed their problems on lab issues and staff inadequate problems. I suggested them to merge two or three colleges and run together. That is the reason the number of colleges have reduced," he added.
