Student outfits at Panjab University have started working overtime to create solid voter base ahead of coming council elections. Activists have commenced campaigning for their parties in order to get a leading hand over freshers who have joined Panjab University for the first time. With each passing day political outfits are gaining momentum to win trust and say over their opponents to make student council elections high voltage affair this year.
Major parties of Panjab University which include National Students’ Union of Indai (NSUI), Students’s Organisation of India (SOI), Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), Panjab University Students’ Union (PUSU), Students Organisation of Panjab University and Indian National Students’ Organisation (INSO) have actively begun their campaigning.
All major student outfits are scheduling visits of political bigwigs to university in coming days. According to sources the visit of top ministers improves party prospects ahead of upcoming elections. National Students Union of India (NSUI) is trying to rope in young faces to campaign for them in elections. Internal rift in party has however been witnessed many times but for upcoming elections the party is united to a common goal. ‘’Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda is expected to visit the campus,” said Manoj Lubana, senior leader, NSUI.
However, Union Human Resource Development Minister, Parkash Javadekar may visit university by August 20 following which ABVP spokesperson Harmanjot Singh said that the visit of minister is not confirmed yet. We are doing door to door campaigning in varsity campus and a four-point agenda has been prepared by ABVP that includes funding for the construction of university hostels with other various issues concerning students’ welfare.
On the other hand Student Organisation of India (SOI) is planning to rope in Union Minister for Food Processing Industries, Harsimrat Kaur Badal in election campaign. ‘’The party is doing a tremendous job and campaigning for upcoming students’ election is going in full swing. Yes, Harsimrat Kaur Badal will visit the campus in coming days,” said Vicky Middukhera, state unit president, SOI.
