BJP will launch a major ‘awakening Campaign’ in July to highlight the ‘threat’ facing Hindu students due to reservation for minorities (read Muslims) and monthly Education (Financial) assistance (EFA), party’s Tamil Nadu president Pon Radhakrishnan said here today.

During the campaign from July 4-31, the party will press for similar EFA for Hindu BCs, SCs, STs and MBCs, he told reporters here after the party’s State Executive Committee meeting.

Government was giving Rs.350 as EFA for minority school students(doing 5th-10th std),and Rs.500 for vocational course students. Besides other concessions on tuition fee were being given to the minority students. On an average each student was being given Rs.35,000 a year, he claimed.

He alleged that Government was encouraging conversions by such moves.

The DMK, which started a big agitation on a ”non-issue like “Anti-Hindi” agitation, which ultimately affected Tamil students, should now help the Backward,SC and ST people and get them the EFA, he said.
