Hyderabad, July 14 (INN): YSR Congress Honorary President YS VIjayamma would undertake two-day fast on July 18 and 19 demanding the reversal of the GO capping fees reimbursement for higher and technical education.
“The State has issued a GO fixing a ceiling of Rs 35,000 to engineering students which will further dilute the fees reimbursement scheme introduced by YSR. The Party has decided to protest against the Government policy and YS Vijayamma will go on a two-day fast,” party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy told reporters here on Sunday.
The deeksha was originally scheduled for July 14 and 15 but was deferred due to the inclement weather.
Earlier, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy undertook Fees Poru at Indira Park from February 14 to 24, 2011 while YS VIjayamma participated in similar protest programmes at Eluru on August 13, 2012 and at Indira Park on September 6 and 7 2012.
Fees reimbursement scheme is close to the heart of YSR as it is very useful to students of weaker sections.
The Deeksha will be in protest against the GO and demanding the Government to revoke the Order.
