Students protest against commercialisation of education

Your Education is Our World

The students of department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Allahabad University performed a ‘buddhi shuddhi yagya’ on Tuesday inside the premises of the University to save the existence of the department and wisdom of AU authorities. The programme began with an enlightening speech of former AU faculty member and convener, Azadi Bachao Andolan, prof Banwari Lal Sharma. On the occasion several students offered `aahuti’ and resolved to continue their struggle against commercialisation of education.

Prof Sharma said, “The step is not confined to a particular department but seeks to change the existing policy. The policy of commercialisation and privatisation of education is an effort to deprive the common student of education, the responsibility for which goes to the vice-chancellor. We shall resolve to take this fight against commercialisation and privatisation of education to the national level.”
