Chandigarh, February 27

BJP national general secretary Tarun chugh today blamed the Capt Amarinder Singh government for meting out step-motherly treatment to thousands of Scheduled Caste students after depriving them of their post-matric scholarship money.

In a statement, Chugh said more than 50,000 SC students had been groping in darkness after their degrees were blocked due to non-payment of the scholarship amount.

The BJP national general secretary alleged since 2017 more than Rs 1870 crore had been embezzled by the Amarinder government, putting the future of SC students at stake. Seeking a inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the embezzlement of the central funds, he urged the state government to help save the future of SC students.
