"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
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.
This resolution demanded that the state government
should take drastic steps to stop commercialisation of
education, she said.
