Taking timeout from his “ Jai Kisan Andolan”, Former Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav on Monday made a surprise visit at Punjabi University campus, where he interacted with the Students and faculty members and assured that he would raise the issue related to Education System in coming days.

To muster support from Students and Faculty members, Yadav Spend two hours in University and had a breakfast with them at University Canteen. A large number of students, who also worked for AAP, joined the Yadav and raised their queries related to AAP and other issues.

“It is such a pleasure to see youth asking questions with an open mind and their keenness to discuss and debate on the state of affairs in the country. They wished to know more about Agrarian Crisis, its relevance in the proposed Development models of the Govt, and were critical too and also equally excited to move forward. It’s a great Sing for Democracy”, said YAdav, who faced a volley of questions over his political ambitions.

The faculty members, including English department HOD Rajesh Sharma asked Yadav to raise issue of lack of funding of Universities at National level. He said that “ Swaraj must be visualised so as to include innovative reconstruction of education in India, and particularly in Punjab where it has been systematically and progressively ruined.

What is the legitimacy of a college degree when many among those who teach you have neither the freedom from worries nor the barest eligibility? The young are not unemployable. You make them unemployable. This is what those in power need to be told”, he said.

Sensing that he can muster large support from Universities and colleges, Yadav said that he would visit again and raise all issues highlighted by Students and faculty members
