Chandrababu meets Guv, complains against AP govt over renaming NTR varsity
Amaravati, September 22: Accompanied by important party leaders, TDP national president and Leader of the Opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu met Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan here on Thursday and complained against the YSRCP government for renaming NTR University of Health Sciences (NTRUHS) after former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR).
Talking to reporters, Chandrababu said that the TDP urged the Governor to take steps for continuing the name of TDP founder and former Chief Minister N.T. Rama Rao to health university. “We have also informed him that the Jagan government is taking unilateral decisions on several matters,” he stated.
Chandrababu claimed that he set up medical college in every district when he was CM. “18 medical colleges were established during the TDP rule,” he mentioned and vowed to fight till the state government reverse its decision. On Wednesday, the AP Legislative Assembly passed a Bill changing the name of NTRUHS to YSR Health University.
