AISA Campaign for Education and Employment issues

UPDATE: Gearing up for 'September Parliament Gherao' All India Student Association (AISA) has called for a countrywide campaign on the issues of education and employment.

AISA Uttar Pradesh unit had organised a convention on 10 May on these questions in Lucknow University. AISA Bihar unit also organised similar convention in Patna on 12 May. The Convention called upon the students to intensify agitation against the betrayal of the UPA govrenment with the students-youth community of the country.

Student leaders described the UPA Govt.'s Employment Guarantee Scheme as an eye-wash and called for the universalisation and effective implementation of it. The participants called for immediate elections of the student bodies in universities of Bihar and demanded recognition of central university status to Patna University. The convention was also addressed by a senior professor of the Patna University, Naval Kishore Chaudhary. A Convention was also organised at Bhagalpur on the same theme on 17 May.

Meanwhile, Revolutionary Youth Association (RYA) has also launched a campaign on the issue of employment. Statewide protest was organised on 14 May in Bihar. Dharnas were organised at several district headquarters during this programme.
