AIDSO submitted to government one crore signatures against disastrous NEP


Andhra Pradesh

On 28 September 2022, as a culmination of 1 crore signature campaign under the call of ‘‘150 days of protest’’ against disastrous ‘New Education Policy 2020’ which was initiated on 1 May 2022 (International Workers Day), AIDSO organised an open press conference and a protest at Jantar Mantar, Delhi. The day commemorated birth anniversary of great revolutionary freedom fighter Shaheed-E-Azam Bhagat Singh. AIDSO submitted one-crore signatures at Raj Bhawans and the offices of the Chief Ministers in all the states on that day and various state level programmes were organised across the country. A memorandum was also submitted to Prime Minister’s Office rejecting the anti-student pro-corporate NEP 2020 brought in by the BJP-led central government.
They further pointed out that there was tremendous response to the signature drive which indicated how much enraged and aggrieved the students, teachers, educationists and other sections of thinking people are at the gradual worsening of the education system and the government’s apathy towards providing public-funded secular scientific democratic education. They urged the student community and common people in general to rise up to the occasion to save education through a powerful mass movement. AIDSO also announced that 1 Lakh student struggle committees will be formed across the country enrolling 25 Lakh volunteers to launch a protracted movement from 28th Sep (Bhagat Singh’s birth anniversary) to 23 January 2023 (Netaji Subash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary).
