Fasting is the best medicine for weight loss ! Accusing the State Government of diluting the Fee Reimbursement Scheme for Engineering college students, which was introduced during former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s tenure, YSR Congress Party honorary president YS Vijayamma announced that she would observe two days hunger fast from September 6 to protest against the government’s move.
In a media statement, Vijayamma said that she would observe two days fast in Hyderabad demanding the government to bear the entire fee of students. “YSR introduced the fee reimbursement scheme to encourage students from poor communities to pursue higher education. It is the duty of Government to reimburse the entire fee and implement the scheme in letter and principle for all poor meritorious students, as per eligibility criteria,” Vijaya Lakshmi said.
