Narayana College fine
Intermediate board officials fined Narayana Group of Institutions with Rs 1lakh for running colleges and hostels without valid permits.
Following the series of suicides by students Education Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao visited Narayana group institutions to find out the reasons for suicides and examine the hostels. He conducted inspection of two colleges and hostels in Vishakapatnam on Saturday only to realized that they were running without any permissions.
The minister reportedly gave earful to the Narayana College of management and Intermediate board. The Inter board woke up and fined the college with just one lakh rupees.
His son and actor Ganta Ravi is married to daughter of Minister P Narayana who owns Narayana Group . So, the Minister by visiting institutions owned by his daughter-in-law’s family made a mockery of the education system in the state. Secondly, this attempt is clearly a response to foil the argument that the government failed to respond or take action against Narayana Institutions.
