Party to take up the issue in forthcoming session of Parliament
HYDERABAD: Communist Party of India (Marxist) has demanded that the Central Government set up one of the three proposed Indian Institutes of Technology in Telangana region of the State.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, CPI (M) Polit Bureau member and MP Sitaram Yechury said the IIT should be set up in one of the backward regions of the State, preferably Adilabad district of Telangana region. Though the State Assembly had passed a resolution seeking setting up of IIT here even if it was on a cost-sharing basis, no step had been initiated thus far in this direction.
The party had, therefore, decided to take up the matter in the forthcoming session of Parliament, he said.
