The Student Federation of India(SFI)’s ‘All India Jatha’(long march) against the Central government’s National Education Policy(NEP) will kick off from Puducherry on August 1, said SFI district secretary Surya Chandra Yadav.

The march will culminate in New Delhi on September 15.

At a press conference here on Wednesday to announce the arrival of the marching group at Anantapur on August 9, he said that Bharatiya Janata Party was creating a divide among the students by introducing digital education during the pandemic. “Not all sections of the student community can afford digital education,” said Mr. Surya Chandra.

The rally will enter Andhra Pradesh on August 4 by reaching Tirupati from Tamil Nadu and reach Anantapur on August 9. Mr. Suresh Chandra urged the students to unite and oppose the new policy that, he said, takes away their Constitutional right to a proper education.
