Dehradun: 25 July, 2015
Activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) held a protest at District Magistrate’s office today to demand improvement in the education system of the state. The activists also demanded 50 per cent relaxation to students on bus fair, new women and sports colleges, strict rules to check autocratic functioning of private schools and improvement in basic infrastructure of government schools and colleges.
Earlier, student activists gathered at the District Magistrate’s office and raised slogans against the government. They alleged that the standards of the education had fallen terribly low, from the primary to the university level, due to which students were feeling insecure about their future.
Protesters also sought a check on the autocratic functioning of private schools so that they cannot exploit parents.
Student leader Anshul Chawla said “Congress-led state government has degraded the condition of education in state, especially government schools and colleges, which have turned into corruption hubs.” The ABVP would not tolerate it anymore and oppose it with a series of intense protests all over the state, they added.
