Hyderabad: Students and parents are greeted by hoardings of all colours and political ideologies during the counselling for Osmania Universitys postgraduate courses at Nizam College Grounds. There have been reports of threat against the candidates from Andhra and Rayalseema regions, though, no official complaints from any candidate has been received. The various student associations, with affiliation to different political parties, have set up stalls on the spot to attract freshers into their fold and making sure that outsiders feel positively intimidated, and thus, are dissuaded from joining the course on the Osmania University campus.
Students from Telangana have been chased away from colleges in Andhra region for many years, and were denied admissions as well.
