Andhra Pradesh Minister for Education Botsa Satyanarayana has kicked up a fresh controversy with his remarks against Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC).
Responding to a question after releasing the results of RGUKT entrance exam results in Vijayawada on Thursday, Satyanarayana said malpractices had taken place in the conduct of TSPSC exams and referred to the arrests made by the police in connection with these incidents.
Expressing his frustration with the media, the Minister expressed his displeasure with the usage of the term “Telangana state.” He said that the education systems of the two Telugu states are different and suggested that the system in Andhra Pradesh (AP) serves as an inspiration to other states. However, he also criticised the TSPSC’s inability to conduct even teacher transfers effectively.
“After all, the TSPSC exams are being conducted unsuccessfully, with incidents of malpractice. Several individuals involved in malpractices have been apprehended by the police,” he stated.
Furthermore, the Minister cautioned against comparing Andhra Pradesh with other states such as Telangana. He discouraged references to Telangana state when making comparisons and emphasised the differences between the education systems of AP and Telangana.
