Varsity students march in capital seeking employment (2/7/2019) 
Thousands of students from varsities across the country braved the winter chill and marched from the Red Fort to Parliament Street in Delhi on Thursday to demand better employment and educational opportunities.More than 50 youth groups, student unions and organisations came together in December last year to form the Young India National Coordination Committee, under whose banner the Young India Adhikar March was held on Thursday.DMK MP Kanimozhi said many young Indians have come to free the country from "this fascist government"."We know how students have been silenced ever since this government came to power. Today we are here to say in one voice that we won't tolerate this anymore. I am so happy to see you coming together against this government and intolerance," she told the gathering.Former JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar also took to the stage to express solidarity with the protesting students. Kumar's one-liners revved the crowd with loud cheers and slogans."It seems Modi-ji has been in election mode right from the time he was elected. He speaks but has not been working. In the first year, Modi-ji was talking about cleaning Ganga and in the second year, he was talking about his own mother but when demonetisation came, he made his own mother stand in the queue. Then the issue was about 'gai maata'," he said.Kumar said the government's "anti-people policies" will be shattered.Gujarat MLA and Dalit activist Jignesh Mevani said there are only 100 days left for the election and this elections will ensure 'ghar waapsi' for the prime minister. "But we do not want to keep him in Gujarat," he quipped.All India Students Association (AISA) national president Sucheta De said students from all the universities who have been branded 'anti-national' have come here to place their demands.Several issues were raised at the march including the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, bringing back the 200-point roster for faculty appointments and removal of hostel curfews for women."Fill all vacant government jobs and end the regime of paper leaks and corruption in recruitment. Spend at least 10 per cent of the budget on education. Stop the policy of school closure, seat-cut, fund-cut, fee-hike and reservation-cut in higher education," the Young India charter released by the students' groups said."End gender discriminatory rules, ensure girls' hostel and effective anti-sexual harassment cells. End saffronisation of education. Ensure academic freedom and freedom of expression in campuses. Fulfil constitutionally-mandated reservation. Institute anti-discrimination cells in all campuses," it added.In another development, Rajya Sabha was adjourned till 2 PM on Thursday as Opposition parties especially SP and BSP protested over the issue of faculty reservation in Universities even as the government assured them that it will file a review petition in the Supreme Court.Members of SP, BSP, RJD and CPI, who had given notices to discuss the issue, were not satisfied with the government's reply that it will file a review petition in the apex court.Speaking on the issue in the morning session, the members demanded that a new bill be introduced to protect the interest of scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and OBC.While replying on the issue in the Upper House, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said, "We are fully committed towards reservation. We will ensure they are not affected."The Minister said the government will soon file a review petition in the apex court on this issue and expressed confidence of getting a favourable judgement.However, Opposition members were not satisfied with the minister's reply and were on their feet protesting, forcing Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn the House till 2 PM.Javadekar had earlier said that the government will file a review petition in the Supreme Court after its Special Leave Petition on faculty reservation mechanism for universities was rejected by the apex court.The University Grants Commission (UGC) had announced in March last year that an individual department should be considered as the base unit to calculate the number of teaching posts to be reserved for Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates following an order by the Allahabad High Court in April in 2017.Earlier after laying of papers, Naidu said that since only four days are left in the Budget session, the House should decide when to have a discussion on the Motion of Thanks to the President's Address.He adjourned the House for 10 minutes till 11:20 PM to give time to both treasury and Opposition benches to decide on the issue.When the House resumed, Naidu allowed members who had given notice on the issue of reservation to raise their concern.
