Madurai: Alleging that Hindu students were facing discrimination in view of quota and finance assistance only for religious minorities, the BJP has said the party will launch an ''awakening campaign'' from July 4 to 31.
After chairing the party's two-day State Executive Committee meet here yesterday, state BJP president Radhakrishnan said the party will demand similar monthly education assistance for the backward classes, scheduled caste, scheduled tribes and most backward community Hindu students during the campaign.
He said party cadres would stage demonstration in all district headquarters to press for their demand.
''There are economically and socially backward people in the Hindu community also, who are not able to pursue education like minorities. The government should help them", Radhakrishnan said.
He said that the government was providing a monthly education finance assistance of Rs 350 for minority students, studying in Vth to Xth standard and Rs 500 for vocational course students. They are also getting concessions on tuition fee. The government was providing Rs 35,000 a year to each student hailing from minority community.
He said during 2009-10, 84,150 school students and 26,342 college students had benefited from the education finance assistance.
He warned that the government's move was indirectly encouraging religious conversions.
Referring to the Sri Lankan Tamil issues, he cautioned the Centre and state governments of the possibilities of anti-national and anti-people forces forming terrorist organisations.
