The Rajasthan University Students’ Union (RUSU) polls are just two days away and the candidates are now going all out to woo the voters.
On Wednesday, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and National People Party Students’ Union (NPPSU) released their manifestos. The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) is likely to release its manifesto on Thursday morning.
In its election manifesto, the ABVP has focused on ensuring safety of girls, improvement in infrastructure, reduction in fee of self-financed courses (SFS) etc.
Mithlesh Gautam, state organising secretary of ABVP, said at a press conference, “We have released our manifesto. If our candidates are elected, we will mount pressure for recruitment of teachers and deployment of female cops at girls’ hostels.” Gautam alleged that chief minister Ashok Gehlot was misusing the state machinery in student union polls.
Likewise, NPPSU’s manifesto too focuses on student-centric reforms.
“The administrative block of Rajasthan University (RU) will be fully computerised so that students don’t face problems.
There are other demands like making RU a central university. We want to bring a change at this varsity as the past experiences with ABVP and NSUI have not been good.
Their candidates did nothing for the students,” said Rajesh Mandiya, who is contesting for the post of RUSU president on NPPSU’s ticket.
