Agartala, Sep 12: The state committee of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) on Tuesday placed a deputation with the District Magistrate of West Tripura district and reiterated their demand to repeal the ‘forceful’ introduction of English language as medium of instructions in the government schools under the Mission Vidyajyoti Scheme.
The SFI state secretary Sandipan Deb, who led the deputation said that the ‘controversial’ scheme has landed students in trouble in the state of Tripura due to the issue of medium of instruction in the examination in the Vidyajyoti schools across the state.
“At a time when the government schools of the state are reeling under acute infrastructural crisis, the Mission Vidyajyoti scheme has brought another burden for the students, who according to the CBSE guidelines are required to write their Madhyamik and Higher Secondary examinations solely in English language from the year 2026,” he said, adding that majority of students in state government schools which are run by the TBSE are habituated with Bengali as the medium of instruction, but now that those schools are brought under the CBSE curriculum, the students will face hurdles in writing their examinations.
Claiming the decision to be completely unfair and illogical, the SFI demanded the state government to stop ‘looting’ the poor families in the name of Vidyajyoti schools. He demanded the government to stop forceful introduction of English language and stop taking annual fees from the students under the Vidyajyoti scheme.
