Reservation and scholarships will be cancelled as a result of a new Education Policy, he alleged.The DMK chief said students in many African, European and American countries were opposed to this pact, warning their governments against signing and similar concerns had been raised in India, he said

 

 

DMK Rajya Sabha member Tiuchi Siva had raised the issue in the Upper House this week, he said adding that if the pact takes shape, the fruits of all social justice-based laws would not remain

.

The (Centre) should not sign this pact, which has so many dangers and is against the society. The ruling BJP should take all efforts to recuse itself from this agreement, he said.
