Popular Front condemns the unconstitutional and undemocratic attitude of the Jharkhand BJP Government that hinder the educational empowerment of the poor

Pakur, Jharkhand: Popular Front condemns the unconstitutional and undemocratic attitude of the Jharkhand authorities which puts blockades before even the Scholarship distribution to poor students. Scholarship Scheme is one of the flagship projects of the Organisation which was carried out throughout the Nation for more than seven years.
The Scholarship distribution program planned by the Jharkhand Popular Front today in Pakur Town Hall was as a part of the said national project. O.M.A. Salam, National Vice Chairman and Mohammed Ali Jinnah, National General Secretary were present on the occasion. Itwas disturbed by denying entry to the hall at the last minute. It was planned was to distribute scholarship worth Rupees 4 lakhs to 86 students selected on the basis of merit and financial backwardness after a series of selection processes started from online application to one-to-one interviews. All the legal procedures including hall booking and police permission were completed well in advance. Besides, there happened calculated steps to foil the program and it happened to know that authorities denied entry in to the Town Hall due to pressure from higher officials. Hence we were forced to distribute the scholarship in open place. It is unfortunate that the State government still continues with its negative attitude towards developmental activities of the Organisation aiming the uplift of the marginalised and the minorities.
The duty of a State government is to protect the interest of the common people and their democratic and constitutional rights, rather than imposing political agenda of the ruling Party. Let’s remind the State Government that once the Honourable High Court has dismissed its politically motivated efforts to suppress Popular Front and its activities. The Court order upholds the fundamental rights and natural justice in a democratic system. We appeal the authorities to give up the negative attitude and to support people’s endeavours to develop educationally and socially. We are committed to go ahead towards empowerment of the poor, in spite of all blockades made by the communal forces. We will challenge legally and democratically, any disturbance faced in this noble cause.
Popular Front calls for people of Jharkhand to unite for the protection of the fundamental rights and against the denial of natural justice.
