As the convention of the Maoist-affiliated All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU-Revolutionary) gets underway in Kathmandu, preparations are being made to formally register a proposal banning the Maoist leaders from admitting their children in expensive private schools. Since the ANNFSU-R has been leading strikes against the private education, they have pointed out that the practice of their own leaders sending wards to private schools must be ended. The Maoist-affiliated student body has said that this practice could deteriorate the situation of discriminatory education. “Majority of Nepali peoples’ children are admitted to public schools. Therefore, our leaders also should send their children to public schools,” said Lekhnath Neupane, president of ANNFSU-R.
