As 287 tribal students under the Jawar project are yet to get admission to reputed schools, the educational future of these students has become bleak. Therefore, today on August 29, 2022, a protest was held for these tribal students in front of the project office at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Jawhar by the office bearers and activists of the Jijau organization, students who were not admitted, and their parents.
The students who have passed 10th in 2022 after studying in the reputed schools under the Tribal Development Project stay home and work there for the last two months. Concern has started in the parent class that the government has deprived them of education.
Under the Tribal Development Project, hundreds of students from Jawhar, Mokhada, and Vikramgad talukas have passed their education to class 10 in reputed English medium schools. It has been said that out of all these students, 132 have been admitted to a reputable school in Panchgani. But 278 students still have to be denied admission due to a lack of order regarding access from higher office.
Bharti Vidyapeeth, Vikramgad (Students – 85), Dnyaneshwar Mauli, Panvel (Students – 87), Sushma Patil Vidyalaya, Panvel (Students – 106) have passed 10th from reputed schools. But all these students still need to be admitted for the 11th admission. The important thing is that all these students belong to the tribal community, and the financial situation of all the students is deplorable.
Immediate action should be taken regarding the admission of all these students. Also, in case of educational loss of all these students, the tribal development project administration will be responsible for this loss.
If no action is taken immediately, a protest will be held on August 29, 2022, through Jijau Organization Maharashtra. Such a letter was given to Tribal Development Project Jawar, Project Officer, on behalf of Jijau Association Palghar.
As all these students were still not admitted, a sit-in protest was held in front of the project office at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Jawhar for the students of these tribal areas along with the Jijau organization, students who were not admitted, and their parents.
Therefore, after the Tribal Development Project Jawhar, Mr. Project Officer gave a written assurance that the admission process would be started in the next eight to ten days and the tribal students from Palghar district and nearby schools would be admitted as soon as possible; the protest called on behalf of Jijau Association Maharashtra was temporarily withdrawn.
But after this promise, the administration was warned that if the admission process did not start within the given time and the students did not get to the nearest school, the Jijau organization would launch an intense agitation.
