Student leaders and union members from over 50 organisations and universities take part in Young India Adhikar March from the Red Fort to Parliament Street on Thursday, February 7, to demand educational and employment opportunities from the government.

The Young India National Coordination Committee (YINCC) said that over the past five years, youth movements have fought against unemployment, corruption and paper leak in the employment exams like the SSC movement, railway movement, para-teachers’ movement and many more. They will come together to participate in the march to convey the problems they have faced over these last few years to the public.

Some of the demands include filling up of all government vacancies, creation of more government jobs, stopping the policy of fund cuts and seat cuts, spending 10% of the country's GDP on education, implementing the Right to Dignified Employment as a Fundamental Right and to end the environment of hate and discrimination in Universities and other spaces.

According to a report in The Hindu, the Delhi Police had earlier refused to give permission for the march route. The organisers stated that it was unfortunate that they were being denied permission but eventually it was confirmed that the permission was granted.

Various leaders from opposition parties are expected to address the gathering in Parliament Street.

Patidar leader Hardik Patel pledged support to the march and tweeted, "I am going to Young India Adhikar March. 24 lakhs govt. Posts lying vacant. Crores of youth on streets unemployed. From SSC to Railway From Bank to UPSC Their voices unite on 7th Feb, Young India Adhikar March Let's support and be part of the student-youth unity! #7FebDilliChalo."

Students of Jamia Millia Islamia have said they will boycott the march since the demands do not include tracing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed who went missing in October 2016.
