Uttar Pradesh | BJP walks out from UP House over ‘non-compliance’ with RTE

BJP today staged a walkout from the  Legislative Assembly against non-admission of poor and underprivileged students in public schools under the Act.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, BJP member Agarwal said as per the RTE guidelines by the Centre, 25 percent seats would be reserved for children from poor and underprivileged sections.

However, under its guidelines the UP government has exempted public schools, he alleged.

Citing the example of Gorakhpur, he said only 63 such students got admission in public schools in the city last year.

He demanded stern action against officials who prepared the guidelines.

BJP Legislature party leader alleged the government was not sensitive to poor and does not want their children to study in good schools.

The BJP members later walked out of the House.
