Mamata may urge youth brigade to be ‘disciplined’
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will meet members of her party’s students’ wing – Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) – on Friday. <g data-gr-id="30">Apalled</g> with recent incidents of students <g data-gr-id="31">gheraoing</g> educational institutions and principals, she is likely to advise the young members to be “disciplined”.
“Don’t break college furniture and gherao your principal all the time. Be disciplined,” is what the CM is likely to tell the TMCP members at a workshop to be held at Netaji Indoor Stadium on Friday. Over 12,000 students are likely to attend the workshop.
“The CM is likely to brief students on two things – the Trinamool Congress’ (TMC) education policy and the party’s achievements – after coming to power. For example, the soon to be introduced online admission system is expected to minimise admission woes of students and corruption to a great extent,” the party’s chief whip in the Bidhan Sabha <g data-gr-id="32">Sovandeb</g> Chattopadhyay told Millennium Post.
“Besides, Banerjee is likely to brief students on the party’s achievements in the education sector such as setting up of new universities, colleges, polytechnics, secondary and higher secondary schools”, he added.
Class Representatives (CRs), owing allegiance to TMCP in across West Bengal colleges, will participate in the programme and will seek guidance from the party’s senior leadership.
The TMC is organising the workshop for CRs. The last three years have seen the burgeoning support of the young in the party’s student’s wing. The CRs, being the future leaders of the party, will get the best guidelines available from the party’s chairperson Mamata Banerjee.
