He is also part of Shiksha satyagraha, it is a campaign to make education a political issue.
Gourav Jaiswal on his visit to Bihar visited few schools and met people who are working in educational development. He urged the youth in Bihar to make education an important issue in upcoming elections. He said, we usually vote candidates if he/she belongs to your caste or region, that doesn’t lead to any commitment between voter and the candidate.
But if we vote based on what work will the candidate do for example will he/she work on the development of the regional schools or come up with more colleges. Most of the candidates don’t want to raise issues that they have to work on and therefore, it becomes our right to cast our vote to the person whose goal is the growth and welfare of society. He urged the youth of Bihar to take responsibility for electing the candidate which will work on the welfare of the education sector. It’s the responsibility of youth to make the upcoming election, an election for education and employment
