Bhopal: Unhappy with the Madhya Pradesh BJP government, the saffron party's student wing - ABVP will gherao the State Assembly on March 26 to press for direct students' union elections in colleges and slashing of high fees in private institutions across the state.

"Though the Madhya Pradesh High Court has directed the state government to hold the students' union elections in accordance with J M Lyngdoh's report, the government has not yet responded to it," Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad state secretary Bharti Kumbhare told reporters here.

"After March 26, we are going to drum-up support against growing commercialisation of education in Madhya Pradesh, and stage a massive protest in September here," she said.

Kumbhare said the ABVP at the two-day working committee meeting of the Parishad's in Madhya Pradesh's Barwani district on March 13 and 14 passed a resolution condemning the high fee structure in private colleges.
