Hyderabad, December 7
The well acclaimed Osmania University and the Jawaharlal Nehru Technical Universities (JNTU) have postponed their exams keeping in mind the Bharat Bandh for Tuesday.
The Osmania University, which was to have the common postgraduate entrance tests (CPGET-2020) on December 8, has also postponed the exam to a yet undecided date.
Registrar of the JNTU University said all exams scheduled for Tuesday, December 8 at the JNTU have been postponed to December 10. The Osmania University is yet to announce the new exam schedule, but is likely to hold the exam sometime this week itself.
Telangana is expected to see a complete bandh due to the massive opposition to the three agricultural laws passed by the Union government recently.
University officials said that the exams had been postponed keeping in view the possible disruption in transport and normal life. The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TRSTC) bus services are expected to halt for some part of the day.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) has told his Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party workers to observe a peaceful, yet complete bandh to support the farmers of the nation. It is expected that trades, business and transport unions will join the call for bandh.
Farmer associations in Telangana, however, have been saying that the TRS government should also look at how states such as Punjab, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh rejected the farm laws through amendments at the state level.
