Priyanka Gandhi’s tweet against fee hike

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has tweeted in protest against the fee hike in IVI. It is written in the tweet that 400 percent fee hike in IVIV is another anti-youth move of the BJP government. Children from ordinary families of UP-Bihar come here to study. By increasing the fees, the government will take away a big source of education from these youth. The government should immediately withdraw the decision of increasing the fees after listening to the students.
