Spokesman News Service: Chandigarh, November 11, 2018: Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday demanded from chief minister Capt. Amarinder Singh to ensure the safety and security of students from other states studying in the universities and colleges of the state.
In a press statement, youth wing incharge MLA Meet Hayer and chief spokesperson, Prof. Baljinder Kaur said that at present students from across the country and from other countries are studing in the universities of state that is benefitting the state financially and also establishing the profile of state.
In such condition, discriminating with them on the basis of religion, caste or language is condemnable. AAP MLAs said that Punjab is being established as 'Education Hub' in the region and due to the apathy of state and centre goverments the condition of govt. universitiesa and other institutions is pitiable. So the private universities are offering higher eduaction courses to the students.
They said that due to delay in releasing post materic scholarship funds to the students, the universities and colleges are aleady having tough time in this situation the insecrity amoung students is adding fuel to the fire. The MLAs said that the people in country are being divided on the lines of caste, colour and religion and Punjab must set an example in such conditions. They said that Punjab is known for its secular approach and people from different walks are living peacefully for years.
The sikh religion and philosophy of sufi saints teaches us to respect each individual. AAP leaders said that police harassing students from north-east states, Bihar, Jammu & Kashmir etc. is wrong. They said that AAP believes in the integrity and unity of India and anyone who is working against it should not be spared but the interogation of students and victimizing them is inhuman.
