Itagar, April 17: A team of All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) called on Secretary Education R K Mishra at his office chamber and submitted a representation demanding early release of stipend to the students studying both inside and outside the state. The AAPSU team urged the secretary to take the stipend problem with utmost priority as the delay in disbursing the stipend to the students especially outside the state are confronting immense problem, opined AAPSU Spokesperson Tanya Agu. He further added that the Government’s proclaimed quote of “Zero Tolerance” for education sector is yet to be seen in practical and in real sense. “The students of the state are in great distress due to non-payment of stipend to school, college and University students inside and outside the state. This has pressed a panic button among the students community. Such inordite delay causes undue harassment to Aruchalee students” the students said.
No lame excuse will be enough to convince the youth of the state at least on this point. If such crisis is not addressed within a reasoble time, we will be compelled to resort to democratic agitation, they added.
The Secretary Education assured to the team of early disbursement of stipends.
