Issuing a release, president of the ANNISU-R Lekhnath Neupane said the union will organise public hearings at all educational institutions from September 19 till October 3. During the public hearing, the corrupt and mafia present in the education sector will be exposed, Neupane said.

A belly rally will be organised in Baluwatar on September 26, motorcycle rallies in all the cities of the country on September 29 and a nationwide torch rally will be organised on October 3. The ANNISU-R said the students will join the general strike from October 4 to 6, announced by the CPN (Maoist).
