Aug, 21, 2021


The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, an RSS student wing, demanded fulfillment of the New Education Policy on Monday. It demanded the complete implementation of the National Education Policy and to provide the details of the same to the public. 


The needs of the students were mentioned in a memorandum submitted to the Minister of Higher Education, Dr. C.N Ashwath Narayan. In the memorandum, the organization raised the urge to waive the fee for students studying in government colleges. This was because of the financial difficulties faced by many students due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Other conditions were put forward by the organization which suggested that the Departments of Social Welfare, Backward Classes & Minority Development, women & child welfare, and transport should work in coordination concerning the working of hostels. It should also provide scholarships and the government should approve appointments for vacant posts in government and aided colleges.


Other demands included:

  • To introduce uniform admission procedures for both private and start-run universities.
  • To release the grant for libraries of colleges.
  • To provide an E-Library facility & online study materials for students.
  • To give priority to sports and fitness of students
  • To appoint physical education instructors as per the ratio of 1 PE instructor for every 50 students.

The student body further said that the National Education Policy (NEP) was announced in 1986 and amended slightly later. These changes have not been in sync with the globalized world or this corporated with the value system of the country and a self-reliant nation. The student body said to implement the demands without wasting any time as these were the long-standing demands of the people of the country.


The Press Conference was held on Saturday and Dr. Satisha, President, State Unit, Prateeka Mali, State general secretary, Swamy Maralapura, Zonal, the organizing secretary were present.
