[Karda Natam]
RAGA, Jul 18: The All Kamle District Students’ Union (AKDSU) on Thursday staged a protest outside the police station here in Kamle district over the registering of a case against the union’s executive members “for no reason.”
Members of the union informed that they had imposed a peaceful shutdown on 21 and 22 June, seeking fulfillment of their demands for the welfare of the student community by the state government, but “the law enforcing authorities considered it a crime and a case was registered.”
The AKDSU informed that the district administration has agreed to withdraw the case, but cautioned that it would continue its democratic movement if the case is not withdrawn.
On 21 June, the AKDSU had imposed a 48-hour bandh in Kamle district to protest against the authority’s alleged failure to address its 21-point charter of demands.
The union’s demands include disbursement of 10 months’ stipends of students of Classes 6 to 8; implementation of Rs 100 lakhs sanctioned under the CMAPY for upgrading the model residential school in Godak; release of the sanctioned amount for providing sanitary napkins to girl students under the 2018 CMFP; and inquiry into the allegation of fund misappropriation and improper implementation of the 2018-19 CMSSY and the ISSE scheme.
