By raising the fees of JNU and by taking loan model, the government has once again made it clear that people of our villages are not included in its definition of development. If only the children of farmers and laborers, who made a university with tax money, are shown the way out, then the youth of the country will sit silently, this cannot be done.
The government is in a mood to sell everything right now. Government initiatives made up of tax money of the people of the country are constantly being handed over to the private sector. This government, which has been generously waiving billions of billions of rupees of rich people every year, is continuously cutting the budget of government educational institutions and education Referring to the market. The condition of government schools is not hidden from anyone and private schools are out of the budget of majority population of the country.
By passing these All India Entrance Examination from dying government schools, when the children of the poor are reaching the best university in the country, then this thing is also coming to the nation’s crorepati MPs and the government’s raga courtiers. Continuing attack on the JNU model of education This is being done so that the model of Jio University can be established in the country where only the children of the rich can get higher education. Fuko has said that “Knowledge is Power”.
It is strange that the Prime Minister of the country is constantly talking about creating an economy of 5 trillion dollars, but the government of the country does not have the money to teach 5000 children. The government can spend 3 thousand crores rupees on an idol, for the leaders. It can buy 200 million private jets, but it does not have the budgets for universities. University is not a mall where you hang a 50% discount board. A progressive society should look at education from investment point of view and not from spending.
Actually, it is not only about the money, but the conspiracy to keep the children and girls of poor peasants and laborers away from the campuses. The government gave the slogan of ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ and worked for ‘Raise fees, Beti Hatao’. In the JNU where the number of girls has been outnumbering boys for several consecutive years, there are many girls who have better dreams of better tomorrow due to the increase in fees. Despite all the conspiracies to keep the children of underprivileged communities away from JNU by changing the model of entrance examination in the last few years, even today, 40% of the students in JNU come from families whose monthly income is less than Rs 12000. Wants to break the spirits and expectations of the students.
The forces in power have always created all kinds of conspiracies to keep the deprived people from knowledge. Dronacharya got Ekalavya’s thumb cut so that the king’s son Arjuna remained the best archer. Even today the government can capture a handful of people on knowledge Wants to keep, because there is power in knowledge, due to which children of poor people can improve their lives. The fee is so high that the poor child does not become a professor in any university after doing PhD. He should either pass the tenth and work at the dhaba or do BA and deliver goods from door to door. Amir’s children read without any rest and the poor children do part time jobs and pay fees, is it a matter of increasing inequality or not?
The government wants that farmers should not get subsidy on their crop, but in the canteen of Parliament on the food made on the same farmer’s crop, the country should continue to get subsidy to the MPs. The poor children in the university should not get hostels for free living but the government These crorepati MPs, who have received lakhs of rupees, should get a bungalow to live in Lutyens for free. The bank loans of billionaire industrialists who donate to political parties should be pardoned and poor children should be forced to fall into the loan trap.
The government wants to create such a generation of young people who study with a loan and later on in repaying the loan, their condition will become so bad that they neither have the time nor the strength to raise the basic questions. Conspiracy is being spread wrong about JNU. For example, it is being said that the hostel fee here is just 10 rupees a month, while the fact is that the hostels here have already paid a mess bill of about three thousand rupees a month. Not only this, those who talk of doing PhD in JNU in five years, should really ask why even three years BA is being done in five years in government colleges of UP-Bihar. But they have a problem as to why a vegetable dealer’s child is opening his own company in the field of tourism studying Russian or French, or how to become a foreign policy expert by doing PhD in African or Latin American Studies.
Today, all those people should come forward and join the struggle of JNU, who are giving both income tax and GST to the government after studying in government educational institutions. If they remain silent today, tomorrow their children will have to study by taking loans or doing part time jobs. The fees of government colleges are constantly being increased all over the country and JNU has raised its voice every time. Today the struggle to save JNU is not a struggle to save any one university, but it is to save those values of equality and justice. Is for Is on whose script our democracy is founded.
Remember, if we remain silent today, tomorrow silence will prevail.
