Initially, the Federation had come across a decision not to allow the state to use the premises of some 2000 institutions, pressing for its various demands. Later, the Federation received a response from the Chief Minister on Monday evening after which it was finally decided to put its protest on Hold.
The Secretary of the Federation, RP Joshi said "After the state education minister failed to give us an assurance, we approached the Chief Minister, where the minister's office had assured us that a meeting will be arranged soon to discuss about this issue".
Further, the federation has also asked the state to pay non-salery grants pending since 2004. Over, 2000 institutions in the state had supported the protest.
Mr. Joshi said that, "We will wait for some days for the actual takl to happen with the Chief Minister. However, if there is no response from the Government, we will restart our protest. We decided not to stretch it too far as the exams are only two days away and we do not want to cause inconvenience to lakhs of students".
Mr.Sarjerao Jadhav, addressing a news conference on yesterday's evening has assured students that the exam will be conducted peacefully even if the agitation is on. We are ready with alternative arrangements. Now, that is federation has decided to stay its agitation, there is nothing to worry about".
Well, students of HSC are to kick off their first exam on tomorrow. We wish them good luck and a peaceful environment through out the day.
