NSUI releases manifesto for DUSU polls
As the campaigning for DUSU elections reached its final stage, the Congress-supported National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) launched its manifesto promising to work for right to accommodation of all out-station students and female students’ safety and security.
The NSUI’s manifesto also focuses on access to sports facilities, promotion of extra-curricular activities, equal opportunity cell for SC/ST, OBC and differently-abled students, improved physical and academic infrastructure for specially-abled students and construction of North-East cultural centres in colleges.
NSUI has taken a stance to demand rollback of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). “CBCS is a misnomer because instead of increasing the number of choices with respect to the subject papers, the same have been limited to 14.
NSUI will fight against the forceful implementation of the draconian CBCS,” said Amrita Dhawan, president of NSUI. However, its arch-rival ABVP supports CBCS. “NSUI will work to establish a centralised placement cell of Delhi University and to provide summer internship to students in DU itself so that their skills get enhanced,” said Nikhil Yadav, presidential candidate.
Along with the main manifesto, NSUI also released a separate manifesto for North-East students. NSUI claims that it will establishment a North-East alumni body.
