Even local MLAs, MPs and Ministers have been singing the same tune. But on ground, the scenario is far away from it. A few institutes, including some central institutes, have come in, but they are still operating from hired campuses in ad hoc mode and are far from moving into their own campuses. Make-shift campuses Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU), a central project set up about six years ago, is still to move fully to its campus in Sabbavaram in the district. The State government has sanctioned about 45-acres and the construction has been lingering on since the last four years. Just one block has been completed and the officials have moved partly into the campus. The plans are grand, the block that is built with the sprawling library and moot court on the campus is said to be one among the best in the country, as per the rating of many top judges who had visited the site, but the slow pace of work is mainly due to the irregular release of funds from the State government.
