AAP students’ wing welcomes new DU batch with selfies
On the first day of the new academic session in Delhi University campus, senior leaders and MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) came out to woo the freshers in support of their student wing Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS); and posed for selfies with them on Monday. The student body of AAP is planning to debut in the DUSU elections this time.
The event saw hundreds of students in queue to interact and have a selfie with senior leaders of the party. The party leaders present on the occasion were Delhi state convener Dileep Pandey, Raghav Chaddha, Raghu Ram and Alka Lamba.
“It was a first of its kind event and the new students were encouraged in this healthy way of welcoming by their seniors. We are thankful to the senior leaders of the party who took their time out to welcome the freshers in DU campus,” Anupam, head of CYSS said.
Welcoming the students who gathered in large numbers to attend the selfie event CYSS Secretary Anuj said: “Together we can build up a healthy campus if seniors and juniors develop mutual respect and regard.” Senior party members and spokespersons visited Ramjas College, Hindu College, Miranda College, Sri Venkateshwara College among others. The party further said that the CYSS is set to contest the DU elections and this exercise seems like a foundation for the party’s campaign.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also took to twitter to wish the new DU students, reminiscing about his college days 30 years back. “I greet all students of Delhi University on their first day in college. Reminds of my student days some 30 years ago!,” Kejriwal tweeted.
