Chandigarh, June 2- (Bharatsandesh news):Hundreds of students affiliated to National Students Union of India (NSUI) today staged march and hold dharna against Punjab education minister Mr.Sikandar Singh Maluka at his residence in village Kansal near here.
The protestors led by Ms.Daman Bajwa President of Punjab unit of NSUI and Mr.Jaswinder Singh national secretary of NSUI marched from Congress Bhwasn Chandigarh to village Kansal carrying banners and raising slogans against the disgraced education minister for his involvement in the book scam.
Ms.Daman Bajwa while addressing the protestors demanded dismissal of Mr.Maluka from the cabinet and demanded a CBI probe against him. She said that the book scam was blot on the face of SAD-BJP government. She said that Mr.Maluka cant escape the responsibility of supplying books with vulgar content to school children. She said that national heroes like Pt.Jawahar Lal Nehru were denigrated by the education minister.
Ms. Bajwa said that Mr.Maluka should show some grace of the post and resign himself on moral grounds. She said that it was unfair on the part of Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal to support Mr.Maluka. She said that daughter in law of the minister was fully responsible for the scam and she must be suspended.
She also said that the Badal government had failed to address the problems of youth. She said that SAD-BJP alliance had promised to give unemployment allowance to youth and laptops to school students. They had also promised free education to girls. None of these issues has been fulfilled. Ms.Bajwa said that NSUI will launch awareness campaign on the drug menace.
