New Delhi, April 7
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday promised another range of waivers, this time for students and said if voted to power his party would bring a law on students’ rights and duties.
Gandhi took to Facebook to make a slew of pre-poll promises for students and said the Congress would waive all outstanding interest on education loans up to March 31, 2019.
He added, “Till the time a student gets a job to repay education interest loan, banks won’t charge any interest to students.”
He also announced a law on students’ rights and responsibilities and said his party would make education free and compulsory from Class I to XII.
Gandhi had earlier said after releasing the party Lok Sabha election manifesto on April 2 that the Congress would raise public spending on education to 2 per cent of the GDP.
