NSUI to begin anti-ragging drive today


The student wing of the Congress, the National Students' Union of India (NSUI), is set to begin an anti-ragging drive in all the colleges of the Delhi University from today. This is the first step step towards the preparation for the university election in September.

The students union is going to campaign with anti-ragging banners and posters in the colleges. "In the just-commenced new academic session of the Delhi University, we are organising an anti-ragging awareness programme. This drive is taking place to make the new students comfortable," said Amrish Ranjan Pandey, spokesperson, NSUI.

The march would start today, from Khalsa College and would end at Ramjas College. The march will be continued in the forthcoming days. Efforts are being made to emphasise on the scope of this awareness programme to all-India level.

The NSUI will hold a open awareness programmes in all the college campuses to create awareness among the old and new students. During the drive, students will be informed about the emergency number to complain against ragging the freshers.

The drive will continue for two weeks in different colleges of Delhi University. The students will be assured that their names will not be disclosed in case they approach NSUI for help against their seniors.

"We will be trying to assure the students that they shouldn't succumb to any ragging that can happen only if they know about the facilities available to stop such acts. Students from all over the country come to the capital to study and its our duty to give them right atmosphere and safety," added Mr Pandey.

After the historical defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress party does not want to lose at the university level too, and the NSUI has active plans for the next two months.

In the next 15 days, the final campaigning strategy for the student's wing will be decided. The NSUI will also be picking many issues as part of their campaign.

"One of our important priority while deciding the election strategies is to maintain peace in the university. There many issues to be addressed for the welfare of the students," said Mr Pandey.
