Hyderabad: SFI phases demonstration in city; needs publications, attires
Hyderabad: Mild stress dominated at the Commissioner as well as Directorate of School Education workplace, as participants of the Student Federation of India (SFI) presented a demonstration before the workplace on Wednesday requiring the State government to offer books as well as attires to the government colleges. The SFI likewise called a state-wide bandh in colleges as well as jr universities. However, just a few colleges as well as jr universities in the city stayed shut, while couple of colleges proceeded normal courses with police defense as well as couple of performed courses in crossbreed setting.
The SFI specified that the bandh as well as demonstration had actually been called as the State government stopped working in giving standard materials consisting of books as well as attires in government colleges as well as for not launching funds for pupils’ scholarships as well as repayment.
Naga Raju, state basic assistant, SFI claimed, “It is almost a month since schools have reopened but textbooks and uniforms are yet to be supplied. So far, about 1.48 lakh textbooks have not been provided to the government schools. How can students study without textbooks? Another concern is that lectures have not been appointed in many government junior colleges and the Education department is yet to release Rs 377.28 crore for scholarships and fee reimbursements that are pending from 2018. The Education department should immediately distribute textbooks. Many of our students were arrested while protesting in front of the Directorate of School Education office.”
“Apart from not providing the basic needs to government schools and colleges, the State government is least bothered for providing quality meals in government and residential schools. There are no monitoring officers appointed to keep a check on the food that is being served. The education sector is being crippled without minimum awareness and funds.
As earlier, many written representations letters were submitted but the State government did not respond to our requests, which forced us to call a state-wide bandh. We are have not received any information from the State government regarding the supply of books to government schools and release of funds,” claimed an opposing trainee.
Later around 66 pupils were taken right into remand by the police as well as were moved to different police headquarters.
