CPI condemns lathi-charge against left wing student leaders

Telangana State CPI has condemned the illegal arrest of Left Wing student leaders and lathi-charge on the student unions’ protesting program against the privatization of education and collection of donations in schools.
On Wednesday, several Left Parties student unions have taken up agitation protesting against the collection of donations by big educational managements from poor and middle class children.

Reacting on lathi-charge and arrest of Left Parties student leaders, CPI Telangana State Council secretary Chada Venkat Reddy has alleged that the managements were collecting donations on various names. He said that the protest program against the managements’ attitude by students unions was justified.

He said that education has become a good sold in open market and the government has to stop the illegal collection of donations. He asked the government to develop the facilities in government educational institutions and upgrade them to prevent donation culture in education system.

Alleging that the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s assurance of KG to PG scheme was disappeared, Chada demanded the government to implement the scheme immediately.
He demanded the government to release the student leaders, who were being detained by the police, immediately. (NSS)
