Kathmandu, July 6:
Eight student organizations held a joint meeting Friday and took various decisions related with education and fertilizer crisis.
The meeting decided to make their protest programmes against the government more effective as it was not listening to their demands.
The student organizations affiliated with various political parties were holding street protests against the government move to bring a full-budget through ordinance and remarks by Prime Minister Dr.Baburam Bhattarai that he would not resign.
"We decided to make our anti-government protests more effective," Nepal Students Union chairman Ranjit Karna informed after the meeting.
He said the meeting repeated its demand with the government to take action against higher secondary schools running illegally and provide fertilizers to farmers on a timely manner. The meeting warned the educational institutions should remove international names by Friday night or the students would remove their signboards.
"If our request is not heard, we will take action from Saturday," said Karna, adding that the educational institutions should bear Nepali names from now.
The meeting also requested the government to take action against schools which took admission charges against the state policy. The meeting also decided to protest the government decision that the restructuring work of Tribhuvan International Airport was being given to the Indian company.
