University administration stated that it had declined the permission sought by student organisations due to security concerns as Gandhi is under special security coverage.

ouHyderabad: Citing security concerns, the Osmania University has denied permission for an event in which
Congress president Rahul Gandhi was supposed to speak. University administration stated that it had
declined the permission sought by student organisations due to security concerns as Gandhi is under
special security coverage. The university Joint Director issued a statement in this regard, even as the
administration faced a protest by students’ body which alleged that the university buckled under the
pressure from the TRS government.

Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said the OU was pressured by Telangana Government to
deny permission. “OU initially agreed to let us organise the event at hockey ground. Who must have
pressured them to decline now? Who is the one who is scared that Rahul will talk of security, safety,
and welfare of minorities? Who is the one who is scared that Rahul will question unfulfilled promises
like fee reimbursement to students, a job for every family? Everyone knows who weighed on OU to decline
permission” Reddy said.
