Leader of CPIML Legislative Party Comrade Mahboob Alam flagged off the Shiksha-Rozgar (Education-Employment) Yatra organised by AISA and RYA on 7 February at Patna University Gate.
AISA National General Secretary and Paliganj MLA Sandeep Saurabh said that the 19 lakh jobs promised by the BJP-Nitish government have proved to be a huge lie, as the Nitish government has forgotten that promise and says it will give 19 lakh loans instead. This is nothing but sheer betrayal of the students and youth of Bihar. At the same time the New Education Policy imposed by the BJP government is depriving children from poor families of education. Through the Shiksha-Rozgar Yatra the wrong and harmful policies of the Nitish-BJP governments are being taken to the people and on 1 March a gherao of the Vidhan Sabha will be held.
MLA from Dumraon Ajit Kushwaha said at the press conference organised on this day that education, health and employment have all collapsed under the Nitish regime and corruption is rampant in all departments. Mahboob Alam said that along with farmers, students and youth are also struggling for their rights today. Also present at the press conference were Arwal MLA Mahanand, Phulwari Sharif MLA Gopal Ravidas, Sikta MLA Virendra Gupta, Tarari MLA Sudama Prasad, AISA State Secretary Sabir, Joint Secretary Vikas Vidrohi, State Vice President Ramji Yadav, Shaswat, Kartik, Sudhakar, Nishant, Danish, Tausif Afaque, Saroj, AISA Joint Secretary Priyanka Priyadarshini, Santosh Arya and hundreds of students from Patna University.
