AGARTALA, September 16 (TIWN): A five hour long sit-in-demonstration was organized by All Tripura NGOs Association against the sentimental decision taken by the Tripura Board of Secondary Education for the madhyamik drop-out S.T. students near Swami Vivekananda ground here this afternoon.

Speaking to TIWN Secretary of All Tripura NGOs Association Ranabir Singha said that education is one of the primary agents of transformation towards development. It is an activity, or a series of activities, or a process which may either improve the immediate living conditions or increase the potential for future living. It may play an important role in bringing tangible benefits by developing the skills of the people. It may expand livelihood opportunities and increase earning potential and thus help in tackling the problem of poverty at large. The major role that education has been able to play is with regard to knowledge inculcation and skill-improvement of the persons, he mentioned.   

He further said that the education department and the state government is not taking any initiative to help the madhyamik drop-out S.T. students. It is an important issue considering the fact that tribals were denied equal opportunity in the past by the government and the policy-makers. It is crucial and important for the development of the tribal communities, the state, and the nation, he added.

If the Tripura Board of Secondary Education does not take any step regarding the issue we will go for further sit-in-demonstration, said  Ranabir Singha.
