Economically weaker students are not untouchables: BSP

Nationalisation of education is the only solution

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) state convenor N Mahesh alleged that private schools are treating the students who are admitted to those schools under Right to Education Act, like untouchables and meting out injustice by making them sit on the last bench in the classrooms.

Speaking at the valedictory of an awareness programme held at A C Madegowda community hall in city on Thursday, he demanded stern action on the private educational institutions showing indifferent attitude.

The state government is supporting closure of government schools with less strength.  Moreover, private schools are denying admission to poor students. The only solution to the problem is to nationalise the education system.

Indian Constitution has stressed compulsory primary education to children between six and 14 years. Hence, education should be imparted to economically weaker students in these schools and the government should bear the expenses, they stressed.

Condemn

The party has also condemned the statements of KUSMA president G S Sharma, where he had compared poor students to waste water. Dr Ambedkar who belonged to lower strata was the architect of the Indian constitution, which is one of the best in the world.

If the public do not choose the right candidate during the elections, the voters have to face such situations frequently in future, he warned. He also explained the importance of voting and awareness on the same.

District unit president B K Raju, district convenor S Siddaiah, M Krishnamurthy and others were present.
