The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) on August 27, 2018, Monday released it’s manifesto for the upcoming Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls, to be held on September 12, with the punchline “#DUSpeakUp”, focussing on a fight for the ‘‘Institution of Eminence” tag and “Students Rights Commission”, an affordable and women-friendly campus.
The manifesto promises free laptops, Rs 10 food-plate in canteens, subsidised accommodation, more hostels and a campaign to identify and groom 100 women leaders from the varsity.
NSUI’s National President, Fairoz Khan, said they will spot potential women leaders from the university, who under a programme will be mentored by former Delhi Chief Minister, Sheila Dixit.
Listing it’s achievements over the past year, the NSUI said that it ran a successful “#TakeBackDU” campaign by winning two of the central seats. The NSUI said it had also asked the DU authorities to make public how DUSU had spent funds over the past year so that students could judge the use of funds they had all contributed to.
It indeed, seems to be a promising manifest.
