The Telangana High Court today refused to entertain a lunch motion PIL seeking the postponement of the degree and post-graduate examinations in the state.

After leaders of the state unit of the NSUI, the student wing of the Congress, attempted to file the lunch motion, the high court questioned why the petitioners were doing this at the eleventh hour when the exams had already started at ten this morning.

Refusing to hear the petition at all, the court asserted that there was no scope to interfere in the matter at this late stage.

Meanwhile, degree and PG students in Hyderabad organised a protest outside the residence of Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy this morning, demanding that the exams be postponed.

Responding to a call issued by the NSUI, students from the Osmania University and the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University took out a rally and gathered outside Reddy's Srinagar Colony home, demanding that the exams either be deferred or conducted online.

After getting police permission, state NSUI head Balmoori Venkat and Congress leader Aamer Javeed met the minister, and demanded that she take a call on the matter immediately.

When Reddy explained that no decision could be taken on the spot, and that the education department would take every precaution to sanitise exam halls, the irked students began to raise slogans highlighting their demand. They pointed out that many students had not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 and that it was only safe to hold exams after all the students had been inoculated.

The kerfuffle prompted the Banjara Hills police to file cases against Venkat and two other NSUI leaders.
