1. Where are the 2 crore jobs that were promised every year in the 2014 election?
As a part of the election campaigns in 2014, the currently ruling party had promised large employment opportunities to its educated and trained youth that faces large economic disparities. The NSUI asks: Is the future of India’s youth nothing but an election gimmick.
2. Why were the scholarship rules for SC/ST students in matriculation changed?
What is the logic behind the dilution of matric scholarship? It is time to put an end to these inequalities. A democracy exists to reduce inequalities and the purpose of the government is to make everyone equal and empowered. We ask: Who are the people against empowerment of the weaker sections of the society?
3. Why is there a dilution of the University Grant Commission’s funds?
At the beginning of the election campaigns in 2014, it was promised that the UGC’s fund of Rs. 800 crore would be doubled to make the higher education system in India more efficient and accessible. However, an analysis of the trends in the UGC funds that far from increasing, the organisation’s fund has gone in the opposite direction, and has only gotten smaller. This severe shortage in the fund has reduced the quality of education offered and has forced institutions and universities to either shut down or make do with lesser qualified and underpaid staff. We ask: Why is the current situation turning into a game with the lives of the youth.
4. What is the reason that the youth of the county still remains dissatisfied?
It is time to put an end to these differences that exist due to the dirty game of college politics between rival parties. Educational institutions like JNU, AMU and various others support and encourage the culture of malpractice within its boundaries. Our freedom of speech is sacred and enshrined in not just the Constitution but also upheld by various judicial precedents. We ask: Are we trying to curb one’s freedom of speech?
