New Delhi: The new Higher Education Bill will be the Opposition’s next target in taking on the Narendra Modi government.  The Opposition parties, including regional outfits like the BSP, SP, Left Front and DMK, have decided to form a broad-based platform to confront the government over the bill, which seeks to replace the University Grants Commission with a new higher education body.

Saying the new bill would give a huge push to private education by replacing the UGC, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said: “We will forge a broad coalition with all secular democratic parties to oppose this bill.”  He said the policy would adversely impact the poor and backwards and give a push to the private sector. Mr Yechury, who has written a letter to PM Narendra Modi , said the effort with be to make it a popular movement.
