Chandigarh, March 2, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

During the Call Attention Motion, Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Barnala legislator, Meet Hayer, raised the issue of the non-payment of post matric scholarships dues to the SC / ST (Dalits) category of students.

Meet Hayer said that some three lakh students belonging to the category in the state were affected due to the non-payment of post matric scholarships by the government, adding some other states of the country were facing similar crisis, leave the states of Maharashtra and Rajasthan, where students belonging to the Dalit community were not allowed to face with a financial crisis of this kind.

He said that despite the highest number of Dalits existing in Punjab, the Dalits were not getting their dues nor were being heard. He lamented that the students of the community were at the receiving end as a majority of them were not given roll numbers by the colleges and educational institutions due to non-payment of fees.

He said that last year, the dues were got released by staging dharnas in Barnala, saying the same situation was looming large on the beneficiaries’ mind, this year as well.

He said that the matter serious as around 1,600 colleges in the state were passing through acute financial crisis and teachers were not being paid salaries for months. He demanded that the government should issue instructions to all educational institutes in this regard so that the post matric beneficiaries students were not subjected to face any problem on that account.

In response to the question raised by the AAP MLA, Minister of State for Education Sadhu Singh Dharmasot, quoting a letter to the union government, assured the member that the instructions had already been issued to all educational institutions.
