Likewise, the government has given a fund of Rs. 10 lakh to the Panchatirtha Shisu Niketon during the same fiscal year, the organizations have further alleged, adding that they would organise protest against such "discrimination" of the government. Both the organizations would stage students' protest on December 22.

They also said that around 200 teachers and 36 other posts are lying vacant in the government schools of the Kamrup district. They said they have conducted a survey that brought into light such government indifference towards public educational institutions.
