On the occasion of its centenary celebrations, the Osmania University Alumni Association announced that it will adopt 100 villages in the erstwhile Telangana districts. The alumni association and its members will work towards ensuring all-round development of the adopted villages. The alumni association comprises more than 25,000 members and it includes professionals from various fields such as engineers, doctors, advocates, businessmen, etc. The alumni members will first analyze the problems faced by villagers and then try to find appropriate solutions and implement them. The work will be done in collaboration with district collectors.
Speaking about the proposed plan to adopt the villages, Osmania University Centenary Celebrations Alumni Committee chairman Anantula Shyam Mohan said that the state government has been encouraging various entities to adopt villages and look after their development. He said that many celebrities, officials and public representatives have already taken interest in such programs by adopting villages and developing them. He said that now Osmanians have decided to take part in the program and serve the state. He said that the program will be launched in the next month itself.
“A high-level committee will be constituted with some expert members on various issues such as doctors, engineers and businessmen to interact with officials and zero in on issues pertaining to the specific village and solve them,” Shyam Mohan said.
