Kathmandu, November 22:
The All-Nepal National Free Studentsâ€™ Union (ANNFSU) is making preparations to bring all the schoolchildren and college students to the streets of the valley on December 2 for the sake of people-oriented education and a democratic republican setup. â€œWe are busy convincing the schoolchildren that they have the right to people-oriented education,â€ said Thakur Gaire, the ANNFSU general secretary.
â€œThe students will continue to hold demonstrations unless the government ensures people-oriented education and agrees not to impose nationalistic education,â€ Gaire said. The CPN-UML and the ANNFSU, the studentsâ€™ wing of the party, have announced that a demonstration for the sake of a democratic republic will be staged in the valley on December 2. â€œNowhere in the world have autocratic regimes lasted for long,â€ Gaire said, adding: â€œThe King has to bow down sooner or later.â€
