History about KCR Higher Education Plan

Chief Minister of Telangana Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao, popularly known as KCR, wrote his first year examination for Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, at the Government Polytechnic here on Thursday. Well, he was not available for the media to tell on how he fared in the examination!

Folks, it is not a funny story. But, in effect, the whole thing turned out to be a big joke played, unwittingly maybe, on Adada Girish, son of Adada Appalaraju, a first-year mechanical engineering student of the college.

His hall ticket bearing number 14009M001 bore the picture of nobody less than KCR, instead of his.

According to KNS Prakasa Rao, Head of the Department, Mechanical Engineering, Government Polytechnic, everything was done online, right from filling up of the application to scanning of photographs and downloading of hall tickets.

“We are probing all angles on how it could have happened. The personal details of the student could have been hacked, someone could have played a crude joke or it could be just a mistake by one of the staff at the State Board of Technical Education and Training at Hyderabad,” he said. According to him, the Board was overburdened with the work of both Telugu states, as it had not yet been separated so far, and much of the work was outsourced.

The discrepancy was first discovered by the student on March 20, and it was brought to the notice of those concerned at the Board, but so far it had not been rectified. The local management took a decision to allow Girish to go ahead with the examination, as he belonged to the college. “Hopefully, it will be rectified soon,” said Prof. Prakasa Rao.
