The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has demanded that a Centre for Telangana arts and cultural studies be set up at the University Of Hyderabad onwards from academic year 2012-2013.

Stating that they have brought this demand to the notice of Union human resource development minister Kapil Sibal recently through a letter, TRS politburo member on Wednesday B Vinod Kumar said it was high time that such a centre was opened for Telangana studies.

“We strongly feel that it is time to study and do academic research on Telangana’s art and rich culture. We also feel that the university authorities are not recognising the aspirations of the people of Telangana,” Kumar said.

Stating that the University of Hyderabad was the result of the sacrifice of 369 students during the Telangana statehood movement in 1969 and 1974, the former member of Parliament said although the varsity was established in Telangana region, it unfortunately has not contributed much towards exploring the region’s history, arts and culture.

“The varsity was announced along with the Presidential order to develop the academic strength of Telangana and to encourage students to pursue higher studies,” he said.

The TRS politburo member said the university had several specialised centres like the University Centre for Earth and Space Sciences, Centre for Cognitive Science, Advanced Centre for Research in High Energy Materials, Centre for Modelling Simulation and Design, Centre for Health Psychology, Centre for Integrated Studies, Centre for Women’s Studies, Centre for Buddhist Studies and Centre for Nanotechnology apart from several newly-established centres.

“The time is ripe for the government to start the centre from the next academic year itself,” Kumar added.
