Five students from the Telangana State Residential Junior College, Sarvail in Yadadri district, figured in the top 10 in the Intermediate examinations this year, an achievement that went unnoticed in the publicity blitzkrieg of private colleges. However, the government recognised their performance and felicitated them with laptops worth ₹ 45,000 each.
The laptops were presented by Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari at the Secretariat and he said it showcased the power of government institutions and the potential they have in throwing up State rankers. The awardees included Ch. Saicharan, State 2nd ranker in MPC; D. Ahmed Waseem, who got 9th rank, P. Vasantha Reddy and J. Bharathu Kumar, who secured 10th rank and D. Nipun Rai, who was at 4th place in the BiPC stream.
