A radical change has been suggested by the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) in country's policy to support education for all. It was reported that nearly 77% of the students in India do not reach class 12. CPI-M politburo member Sitaram Yechury while addressing a conference of the Students Federation of India (SFI), the student wing of CPI-M, Monday evening, mentioned that it is due to the existing policy that 77% children are unable to reach class 12.
It was reported that the above figures were discouraging, taking into account that INR 410,000 crore was the allowed tax relief for the affluent people. Additionally, it was told that 50% of the students did not get sufficient food and less than INR 20 was the daily income of 77% people.
