GOLAGHAT: The All Assam Scheduled Caste Students’ Union (AASCSU) of Golaghat district committee submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner of Golaghat, Dhiren Hazarika on Tuesday demanding proper implementation of the scholarship scheme for SC students.
The organization expressed sharp reaction over alleged poor implementation of the scholarship scheme in Golaghat district. In a press statement, the secretary of the organization, Pranab Protim Das said that a team comprising president of Golaghat AASCSU, Madhurjya Das and organizing secretary Prahlad Das, under the leadership of central committee chief organizing secretary Dipankar Das, met the DC of Golaghat and submitted a memorandum demanded immediate resolution of the scholarship issue.
Dipankar Das said that thousands of meritorious schools and college students had been deprived of the benefits of the scholarship scheme due alleged ignorance of schools and college authorities and Scheduled Caste Development Board. He further said that students should get the scholarship every financial year, but due to ignorance of the authority concerned, students were getting the scholarship after 3-4 years. They alleged that these anomalies had taken place only due to the ignorance of head teachers and principals of schools and colleges who do not submit the scholarship forms of students on time. The AASCSU demanded the authority concerned to provide scholarship to SC students on time or they would launch massive protest.
