ABVP demands increase in ST student scholarships

Jamshedpur No Comments on ABVP demands increase in ST student scholarships 8

Jamshedpur : The Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Wednesday demanded that scholarships of Schedule Tribe students should be hiked based on the
prevailing inflation of the country.

ABVP activist Amitabh Senapati led a demonstration in front of DC office.

He said the government had enhanced the scholarship amount from Rs 350 to Rs 550 per month
last year but it was insufficient for a student to manage compared to the increasing inflation and price rise of essential commodities.

He strongly advocated that the hike in the scholarship amount should be proportionate to
prevailing inflation.

Currently, we have over 4500 ST/SC students hostel in the country but unfortunately majority of them were in very bad shape with inadequate toilets and bathrooms.

On this occasion, mainly Yasrvlvy Shukla , Sonu Thakur , Dr. Kamlesh Kumar Kmlendu , Satnam
Singh , Prabhat Shankar Tiwari , Ravi Prakash Singh , Sukhdev Singh , Rahul Prasad , Pan Singh , Amardeep Singh Gill , were present.
