Hundred of students and youngsters across the country with education and employment on their minds, marched from Jama Masjid in Old Delhi to Jantar Mantar in Central Delhi last Thursday.

The march was led by some students from Jawaharlal Nehru University, the All India Students Association and Revolutionary Youth Association – with both groups affiliated to the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) – the march is an attempt to attach, together student and youth campaigns across the country into a common movement like India’s farmers have done.
