Yemeni students in India step up protests against Hadi’s government

SANAA, Sept. 27 (YPA) – Yemeni students in India on Sunday staged protests, denouncing Hadi’s government’s failure to pay their financial dues, which have been suspended for more than a year.

 In a statement issued by the vigils in all cities of India, Yemeni students threatened to escalate through organizing two-week vigils and to hold open a sit-in in front of the Cultural Mission and Hadi’s Embassy in Delhi until their demands were met.

 They accused Hadi’s financial attaché, Bagel al-Shammiri in early September of injustice and corruption after dropping the names of 30 students from annual tuition fees.

 The students said al-Shammiri had become a sources of concern threatens their future, noting that dozens of scholarships were threatened with dismissal from Indian universities as a result of non-payment of tuition fees by Hadi’s ministry of higher education.

 They demanded the dismissal of Al-Shammiri and urgently paying all their  fees to all those whose names had been unjustly dropped.

 Students studying in Jordan, Egypt, India, Russia and other countries suffer due to Hadi’s deliberate disregard for their suffering and non-payment of their dues, which has negatively affected their level of education, while their scholarships and finances are traded and sold to the children of merchants and officials.
