Agartala, Sep 01: The state committee of the SFI and the TSU on Friday demanded the government to repeal the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP)-Model in the education sector of the state.
Addressing a press conference here at Agartala, the SFI state secretary Sandipan Deb said, “The government in the name of PPP model is aiding the private colleges having no proper infrastructure to establish their business policy in the education sector of the state.”
He castigated the BJP government in Tripura over implementation of the Vidyajyoti scheme and said, “The controversial scheme has landed students in trouble in the state of Tripura due to the issue of medium of instruction in the examination in the Vidyajyoti schools across the state.”
“In a recent memorandum the concerned authority of the state education department had said that the CBSE allowed ‘Bengali’ as medium of instruction in Vidyajyoti schools of the state for only two years, and after two years English will be the only medium of instruction as the CBSE norms,” he said, adding that this will land the students of Vidyajyoti schools in trouble.
In context of the Dental College which started functioning from Friday here at Agartala, SFI state secretary Sandipan Deb alleged that the newly built Dental College lacks proper infrastructure, following which the students will face trouble.
“Without ensuring proper infrastructure, the government managed to run this Dental College in Agartala,” he alleged.
