SC/ST students’ rights violated: SFI
The SFI staged a dharna at Pink Petal Chowk in Himachal Pradesh University to take up issues of SC and ST students. The SFI alleged that the New Education Policy was quiet on the reservation for SC and ST students. Alleging that constitutional rights of these students were being violated in the name of New Education Policy, the SFI said they had not been given scholarship amounts for a long time, which had made it difficult for them to continue their studies.
