Bhattarai govt working at India’s behest: Students
KATHMANDU: Nine student organizations affiliated to different political parties have accused the present government of acting at the behest of India thereby jeopardizing national integrity.
The mum of the government over the statement by Indian professor SD Muni that King Tribhuvan had intended to annex Nepal into India, and reference of the letters by Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai to the Indian government during the insurgency was against national integrity and nationality, they said.
Coordinator of All Nepal National Independent Students Union (ANNISU-Revolutionary) Sharad Rasaili said the meeting of the nine student unions urged the government to be serious about nationality, and tame the growing foreign meddling in the country.
Similarly, the students organizations have also decided to take the struggle against commercialization of education to the local level by debunking the colleges named after foreign places and clubs. They would also form struggle mobilization coordination committee at the local levels on Monday.
The students have planned to rally before the campuses, organize transport strike on Tuesday, stage a sit-in for two hours before the district education offices throughout the country on 8 August, organize torch rallies in major cities on 10 August and close down all campuses run by the CTEVT on 12 August.
The meeting was attended by Nepal Student Union affiliated to the Nepali Congress, ANNFSU affiliated to the CPN-UML and others. RSS
