Kerala HC orders ban on strikes in schools, colleges

Kochi, Feb 26 (UNI) Kerala High Court on Wednesday issued an order banning strikes, sit-in-protests, marches and gherao inside school and college campuses.
Learning is the fundamental right of the students. ''Campuses are places for creative dialogues and discussions. They should not be venues of the protests'', the court said.
The court in its verdict on a petition filed by two schools in Pathanamthitta further said that no one should be encouraged to strike or obstruct studies.
Several academic days and hours were lost due to strikes and protests, the petition stated and sought immediate intervention of court into the matter.
Students organisations have slammed the verdict.
Kerala Students Union, students wing of the Congress, said the order would have a negative impact on the society. The government should appeal against the verdict, KSU president K M Abhijith said.
Students Federation of India, students wing of CPM said the order was fundamentally against the constitutional rights.
SFI state president V A Vineesh and secretary Sachin Dev, in a statement said the right to dissent was the foundation of democracy.
The court order violates the right to freedom of speech and expression granted by Article 19 (B) of
the Constitution, he added.
