More than 100 members of our organisation have decided to start a signature campaign to garner support for Pinky Chauhan, a student of Government Girls College, Gurgaon, who attempted self-immolation last week over bizarre evaluation of exam papers.
We appeal for support from all the colleges in the city and plan to meet Union HRD minister Smriti Irani, who will be in Gurgaon on Tuesday. We demand the immediate arrest of lecturers and principal for their alleged involvement in the case. Despite that Pinky has given statement against six lecturers, the police have not made their names public. We demand immediate arrest of all the people who harassed her.
We also demand that Pinky should be given a government job and economic support should be provided to Pinky's family at the earliest. We believe that there is a need to address some serious issues in the education system in Haryana.
