President to launch OU centenary celebrations

 Hyderabad, April 25: President of India Pranab Mukherjee is visiting Hyderabad on Wednesday to attend two programmes.

He will inaugurate the centenary celebrations of Osmania University at the campus and will address the first convocation of English and Foreign Languages University at Gachibowli.

He will reach Begumept Airport  by a special aircraft at 12.05 PM. He will drive straight to Osmania University campus to inaugurate the centenary celebrations.

Telangana Governor ESL Narasimhan, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, union minister Bandaru Dattatreya, deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari and several state ministers will attend the programme.

Elaborate security arrangements have been made at the campus for the ceremony.

 KCR on Tuesday held a meeting with Director General of Police Anurag Sharma and Hyderabad Police Commissioner Mahender Reddy to review the security arrangements.

 Police were making fool-proof arrangements for the event. Officials said entry will be allowed only to the valid pass card holders and after establishing their identity through fingerprint scanner.

Though students’ groups have assured the university authorities that they will not disrupt the celebrations, the security agencies are not taking any chances.

 This will be KCR’s first visit to university after formation of Telangana state in 2014.

 The students’ group are seeking an appointment with the Chief Minister to bring their problems and demands to his notice. They want him to fulfill the promise made during Telangana movement to provide one lakh jobs.

After attending the inaugural ceremony of the centenary celebrations, the President will have lunch at Rajbhavan.

 Later he will also address the first convocation of the English and Foreign Languages University at Gachibowli before returning to Delhi at 6.20 PM.

 Police have imposed traffic restrictions on Begumpet Airport-Osmania University route, Osmania University-Rajbhavan route, Rajbhavan-Gachibowli and Gachibowli-Begumpet Airport routes.
