24 lakh students would be exposed to corona by Modi: Punjab NSUI president

Targeting the PM for his anti-student policies, Punjab  NSUI president Askhay Sharma on Thursday said future of 24,00,000 students is being jeopardised by Modi who when it comes to himself says Jaan hai to jahaan hai.

Taking out a protest march here alongwith Amritsar NSUI youth vice president Vivaan, Shobit Babbar and Rajiv Chhabra outside BJP office after burning effigies of Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, Akshay Sharma said Modi is forcing students to be exposed to deadly Corona pandemic, which has claimed more than 8 lakhs lives worldwide. In view of our safety or lives of student brothers and sisters, I demand immediate postponement of both NEET and JEE for the time being, Akshay asserted.
