Dear Parents,

You always strive to get a good education for your children which gives them better future. You sacrifice even your basic needs and spend lakhs of money to get a good education for them. And you join your children into big corporate colleges like Sri Chaitanya and Narayana. Because you think they are the good colleges by looking at their advertisements about their ranks incompetitive exams. But these corporate colleges are killing your children for the ranks which would earn them profits.

Sri Chaitanya, Narayana, and Other corporate colleges treat education as a business. So, they play all kinds of tricks to get students and make profits. Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges have hundreds of branches and thousands of students in Telangana and in many other states as well. Out of its many thousand students, not even one percent gets state ranks in competitive exams. Even if the student gets rank that’s your children efficiency but nothing else. There are many students from these same colleges who do not even get average marks. And many of the students won’t get through any competitive exams. So, if you believe that whoever joins in this college gets a good education, its wrong. Because, their idea of ‘good’ education itself is problematic.

Sri Chaitanya and Narayana advertise good infrastructure which they have in one or two main branches. But they have narrow suffocating classrooms where no proper lighting will be there. And they make a huge number of students sit in those classes. There are no labs for practicals where students learn some practical knowledge.  Basically what they do is make students study for 16hours without proper sleeping. And students have to go through mental trauma and psychological unrest that pushing them for suicides. Only in 2017, there were some 47 students committed suicide in these two corporate colleges. These are the students who committed suicide within the college premises. The number can bemore than this. And there must be many students who are facing psychological issues. Even after all these, no case has been filed against them which shows the strong coalition between state and corporates.

Sri Chaitanya and Narayana hostels are mear jails than academic spaces.  Nearly 18 students should stay in the small single room. Students could not question about food. If they do, they will face physical torture. These things have shown up on social media so many times. They don’t allow parents to check the hostels. Students have to get up by 4 am and study till 11 pm.  The students will not get any holidays. And the sexual harassments which girl students have to go through are countless.

In 2001 government appointed Niradareddy committee to look into the complaints on Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges. This committee reported to the government that these colleges are treating students inhumanly.  The committee also suggested for only 9 hours study and give some time for games and other activities. Niradareddy Committee brought out the reasons why students in Sri Chaitanya and Narayana committing suicides. But the government has taken no action against Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges. Moreover, political parties in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh made these two college managements part of the government. Narayana group of education chairman P Narayana is the minister in Telugu DesamParty government in Andhra Pradesh. This is the way Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments choose to deal with the corporate colleges.

Demand for KG to PG free and common education

To stop the student’s suicides, ban the Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges. The government should stick to its promise of free KG to PG common education and implement it.  Don’t pay lakhs of rupees to Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges and economically bankrupt, to kill your own child. Demand KG to PG free common education for all. That is the only solution for these suicides and unemployment problems. Poor or rich, should go to the sameschool and get the same education.

Please sign this petition to ban Sri Chaitanya and Narayana colleges and to save your child. Demand KG to PG free common education for the better future of your child.
