National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), the students’ wing of Congress, launched its ‘Behtar Bharat’ campaign at Cotton University, Assam on Friday.
The aim of the campaign is to give the students of the state a platform to air their grievances and make their concerns a part of Congress’s national agenda ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
Under this initiative, students will get a chance to speak directly with the Congress leadership and set national agenda, reports TOI.
Students can post their grievances online on the official campaign website of Behtar Bharat.
Some of the proposals of the campaign include providing access to affordable and quality education for everyone, making education and work women friendly, demand to set up a student’s rights commission, a call to end corruption in examinations, increasing employment for youth and making educational institutions discrimination free.
During the launching of the campaign, Assam Congress in charge Harish Rawat, Assam PCC president Ripun Bora, leader of the opposition at the State Assembly Debabrata Saikia and All India Congress Committee (AICC) joint secretary and NSUI in charge Ruchi Gupta were present among others.
Rawat said, “Rahul Gandhi is firm on incorporating the concerns of students in the party’s national agenda”.
